I can't believe that this run is coming to an end, I have only just seen and would widely recommend. A great new script, performed by a formidable cast, brilliantly directed. The performances of the cast are flawless and highly commendable, immensely funny and yet moves smoothly to a deeply touching conclusion. This is a gem of a find, if you have any chance, please try and make it., you will not be disappointed. Finally, agree with previous review, this deserves to be transported to another venue.

The vicar at All Saints church in Peckham takes drastic action when her soup kitchen volunteer is threatened with deportation. What harm could one sham marriage do? Furious theatre present this comedy following their 'Confetti' in 2012.

LOVED THIS! A MUST SEE! I literally laughed all the way through. Brilliant actors and a touching story kept me gripped throughout.
Saw this show last Friday and was bowled over by it. Both staged and set in Peckham in a charming and atmospheric theatre space, the play was touching, funny and consistently engaging. The cast of six are uniformly strong and slickly directed by Helen Sheals. Credit also the the writer, Nicola Baldwin for writing such likebale characters, whilst providing the audience with ample opportunity to reflect on the moral dilemmas they face throughout the piece. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Wow! I laughed until I cried! Everyone has got to see this Play! I loved everything about my evening at All Saints Church, I was treated to an evening of brilliant writing, excellent direction, and a truly talented cast, chosen perfectly. Set in a church falling into disrepair, the last refuge is the perfect venue for the piece, as you wind your way to the theatre, the surrounding churches belt out their hymns, adding to the atmosphere. The performances and comic timing of the actors is superb and the story is just brilliant, please do not miss this hilarious and heart warming piece of theatre.
A brilliantly written, and acted play. Effortlessly managed to give an accurate insight into modern cosmopolitan London whilst delivering numerous laughs at the ridiculous situations the vicar finds herself in. A great way to spend your evening in a brilliant small venue with a talented group of actors as company. Highly recommended
