"The only real question is who is falling about more: actors or audience!? The only pain is from aching ribs. Great entertainment" Eastbourne Herald

"The slickest slapstick I have ever seen, this show is an absolute delight.  The talented cast have the audience in stitches from the very start with truly wonderful word play and brilliantly choreographed physical humour." Viki, EBTheatres Ambassador

"This is a high-octane farce in which the writers clearly have fun with all the classic elements of comedy including a silly plot, slapstick set-pieces, farcical misunderstandings, over-the-top characters, recurring jokes and ridiculous disguises, as well as Buster Keaton-style acrobatics. Production company Mischief Theatre live up to its title, the play poking fun at everything from overblown ‘heist’ movies to amateur dramatics." Robin Houghton,
