Probably the funniest show I have seen. I never realised it was a comedy and expecting the Hitchcock version of the story. Within 5 mins I could see where this film was going. Only has 4 members in the cast. But it was very funny...More

Brilliant play cast did a fantastic job keeping the essence of the book with dad jokes and Hitchcok references. Suitable for ages 14 and up we saw it in Theatre Royal Glasgow which is a stunning modenrised theatre in a city centre location.

This performance was charming and witty. The handful of talented actors, comically switched into different characters at pace, keeping the audience at the edge of their seats with laughter and awe of what would follow.

We went to see the show, then we sent our parents, and then we took our children. Yes, it's THAT good.

Funny and innovative I loved every moment of this production. At no time did I ever get bored and the hospitality staff were all friendly. If you fail to enjoy this production then you probably need a personality transplant.

Criterion Theatre is nothing very great except for the location in Picadelli Circus. The flights you have to take by the stairs are not so enjoyable as you take your seat. But as the show starts you will forget all the ordeal. Just four actors...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
