Best production I've seen for as long as I can remember! Great performances all round produced a production which had me laughing from start to finish and I was sad to see it end.

Fantastic production brought to life by the performances of an energetic cast. Everyone from start to finish was superb. Didn't stop laughing; it's a must see!

What a great production of this much loved late C18th play. Sheridan's characters are given such promising descriptions; "Mr. Premium" the broker; "Lady Sneerwell" the gossip-monger (one of many) and Snake (a, erm, snakey individual) to name but a few. The cast do not disappoint and strongly grasp each character and their nominal quality or vice. It is done with such skill and craft so as to avoid the pitfalls of pantomimic two-dimensionalism, but giving the audience a laugh a second. It is like watching a Hogarth tableau come to life - props to the producer and constume dept for that. Go and see it!
