Horrendous piece of 'theatre'; it's an insult to amateur dramatics to define it as 'amateur'. Script was poor, no theatrical magic, stock cardboard characters, acting was as hammy as the set and direction, or lack of, was painfully obvious. It angers me when such money has been spent on marketing and ensuring such a great venue, and this poor quality production, is given such hype. Far more talented young people wound have loved and truly valued this major messy missed opportunity. One of the worst shows I've ever seen!

This is the worst thing I have ever seen. Terribly written and directed, and acted for the most part. The whole play feels like little episodes of a soap from over the years which begin with tons of exposition, but nothing really happens in any scene. What is the play trying to say? The young girl was particularly horrendous. Over the top, presentational and void of substance and meaning. For a new play, it felt dated, inaccurate, cliched and pointless. The people of London deserve better.
