Amazing!!! Don't miss this show. So funny and so clever. Not your usual panto - much better. Plenty of audience participation. Great night out.

Without a doubt one of the most evocative, innovative and truly inspiring piece of choreography and performance I have seen in a long time. The Barbican theatre was the perfect venue, friendly, intimate, I hope you continue to showcase such talent.

Tucked away in the Historic Barbican is this fantastic venue. A friendly welcome and charming atmosphere. Recently watched Kernow King's latest show Splann. Looking forward to the next visit to watch one of the great productions that are regularly shown there!

Have been to a couple of shows there and it is a brilliant little independent theatre. Food is good and drinks are reasonably priced. The auditorium is great with an old feel and good views all round. Will be returning in the near future!

I'm reviewing the show we saw as much as the venue, because it was the greatest piece of theatre I've ever seen, and hats off to Barbican Theatre for putting it on. It was inventive, the acting was incredible and the whole thing was hysterical. We were roaring with laughter. Great atmosphere in the bar afterwards, and the performers and... More

Excellent fun evening, last night at the friendly Barbican Theatre. Hadn't heard of this Devon theatre group but we were comprehensively entertained and left in great spirits to see the night out in the nearby Dolphin.
