I’m an Aristocrat Get Me Out of Here, 6th December to 5th January
Paris, 1792. Revolution grips the city and the secret police march traitors to their deaths. No one is safe. Everyone is a suspect. Paris needs a hero, someone who can deliver it from this terror and restore freedom and justice. Will such a hero emerge? Yes. With comedy and thrills galore you’ll gasp, laugh and be amazed at the elaborate sword fights, the heart wrenching love scenes, and the sensational death-defying French accents!
Reviews of What the Dickens
30th November to 30th December 2012.
There are reviews in The Stage ("slapstick for the kids, knowing pastiche for the adults, and eccentricity that will appeal to all... a hoot from start to finish, and will no doubt leave many audience members asking, “Please sir, can I have some more?”"), Oxford Times ("a breathless two-hour romp... if you fancy some non-panto theatrical entertainment this yuletide then this is the show for you"), British Theatre Guide ("the plot is plain daft but performed with such pace and commitment with so many split second costume changes that you have to admire the dexterity and skill of the cast... a highly entertaining seasonal evening and the perfect alternative to the traditional pantomime... highly recommended"), Daily Info ("bristles with invention, wit, and comic timing. Children's laughter raised the roof. So did adults'") and ReviewsGate ("a show of crafty, crafted moments, nifty interludes and sharp-etched caricatures, without much overall coherence or drive").
