Janie and I both profoundly hated this play/production.
We normally like Irish plays, even if they are a bit silly. But this one seemed to us to be silly to the point of not having any point at all.
If you read the rubric, still available on the Official London Theatre site along with production details – click here – you can see why we booked it. Sounds interesting. Potentially really good.
- In a rare extreme divergence of views from us, Michael Billington in the Guardian really liked it – click here;
- Sarah Hemming in the FT was less sure – click here;
- Mark Shenton in the Stage admired the troupe but not the play – click here;
- The West End Whingers hated the play but quote from several of the good reviews – click here.
So, as the whingers say, what do we know?
