This version in it's run at The Comedy Theatre........D6

A comedy of door - a farce, if you will. Not something I would normally rush to see but the cast list and director were too much of a pull.

Mark and Michelle stole the show for me but that is high praise amongst some wonderful performance. The set was in a glorious tri-crhome arrangment playing on those ice-cream colours of a globe.

Mark's perspiration bothered me but all credit to Tamzin who had to prolong a snog through it.

I had a really good laugh and the time flew by.

Celeb in the audience : Maria Aitken, Chris Morris and I think Anastasia Hille
