Travelled from the Lake District on Wednesday to see this play and it really is diabolical. Complete slapstick and not funny at all. The humour is completely obvious with the same slapstick being repeated over and over again. NOT FUNNY at all!!! Left at the interval. Have seen lots of Musicals and Plays in the West end and this is by far the worst!!!!

What a wonderful cosy theatre to visit. Well worth going here. Small and extremely friendly. You have superb view of the stage no matter where you sit. Very comfortable seats. We saw the play that foes wrong, absolutely brilliant. Made even ore so by the beauty of the surroundings.

Lovely little theatre, great view from our seats, bar a little on the small side but drinks reasonably priced for a west end theatre . Sound quality very good and comfortable seating

Went there at the beginning of June. The play was great we had a lovely time. Would see another play by the same group of actors definitely.

Heard about a play here and had the hotel make reservations. It is in the west end right by Covent Gardens. It is small but viewing is good from all the seats and acoustics are good. Enjoyed our time there
