Loved the show, was laughing right from the start. Well staged and pacey show in a lovely theatre. Cast all seemed to be enjoying performing.

Don't bother wasting your life on seeing this. Unfunny, if there is such a word. Dreadfully disappointed having laughed non-stop at The play that went wrong" Would have left early but with friends who were more optimistic that it would improve; it didn't
