Wait, what’s at Above the Stag? That’s the question that invariably comes up in the first half hour of London trip planning. Always a reliable evening, from the serious stuff to the most brilliantly non-sensical Panto. Nothing’s on this May? Must be the move.

Down a dodgy alley and under the railway tracks, you can hear the trains rumble past overhead during the performance. About as quirky as it gets. And this adds to the character of the place. The intimate venue (50ish seats?) makes you feel like you're...More

A lovely, funny, tuneful show about attraction, love, fancying, football, and friendship. Handsome cast.
