This was an absolutely amazing production! The cast performed with absolute abandon. Hysterical, dark and edgey with belly laughs to boot! When you take the stage away from extremely talented performers for too long, this is what happens! Finally they have been let out of their cage after more than 12 months and set free to play! Euphoric! As an audience member I was transported into their world! A memorable night in the theatre filled with thespians who have been starved of performing and boy did they feast on the energetic audience! A must see for anyone.
