Real life, fantasy and hallucination.
Freud meets Dali, meets half-naked comedy chaos.
Serious stuff is swept up in the crazy world of theatrical farce.
Terry Johnson’s brilliant creation achieves a rare balancing act, in which alarming subjects and events are filtered through high-jinks comedy entertainment. It’s a play that’s always sparkling and witty, while sometimes descending into low farce, while somehow still being thought-provoking and deeply touching.
It’s a modern classic and a great experience, which makes you laugh, think and feel - often all at the same time.
