The dreaming spires of Oxford are seen by many as the vision of the idyllic, the meeting of the pastoral and the edification of those that reside within its natural border, there is something to be said for this near vision of perfection, of the unceasingly bucolic and the trek through the minds of the people who make it their business to steal the vision and try and make it an overpowering Arcadia.

Noises Off, Theatre Review. The Lowry, Salford.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Cast: Maureen Beattie, Neil Pearson, David Bark-Jones, Thomasin Rand, Danielle Flett, Chris Larkin, Sasha Waddell, Simon Bubb, Geoffrey Freshwater.

What Noises Off brings to the stage, is the sense of what regional theatre really is like, fly by the seats mayhem, utter confusion and misunderstanding and above all just the most amazing and side splittingly funny couple of hours you can ever hope to have in a theatre.

The Lowry in Salford is the latest venue to host Michael Frayn’s incredible farce and with a cast that you just want to carry on forever, causing mayhem and theatrical anarchy as they go.

Yes, Prime Minister, Theatre Review. Apollo Theatre, London.

Cast: Simon Williams, Richard McCabe, Chris Larkin, Charlotte Lucas, Kevork Malikyan, Jonathon Coote, Michael Chadwick, Mark Extance, Sarah Baxendale.

Some comedies are created great, some achieve greatness and then there was the political satire that set the bar so high it had greatness thrust upon it and the sincerest kind of admiration that Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister deserved.
