I don’t remember a great deal about this one, so perhaps it wasn’t the hilarious romp the Bush production resource suggests that it must have been.
Interesting list of young playwrights collaborated on the piece, though; James Graham in particular having shot to playwright stardom relatively quickly since.
- Whoops, Charles Spencer in The Telegraph utterly hated it, awarding it a rare one star;
- Ian Shuttleworth in the FT was also rather unimpressed but at the three star level;
- Philip Fisher in British Theatre Guide describes it as patchy but clearly likes some of the patches.
I don’t remember hating it – but I do recall that curates egg feeling about it. “Sounded better as an idea than it turned out to be as a play” was probably Daisy’s verdict.
