I loved the original movie with Sir Alec Guinness & Peter Sellers so I was really excited to see how this amazing ealing comedy could be brought to life on stage. I wasn't disappointed. This play was a laugh-a-minute with excellent acting from everyone but...More

Wow- what a funny show. I usually go and see musicals but based on previous reviews, we decided to give this a whirl. Really pleased we did as it finished off our London break perfectly.

We went to a Saturday matinee and were certainly not disappointed - it was so funny you laughed out loud on many occasions. Ralf Little's physical humour was simply brilliant and the whole cast were exceptional. The way they do the 'heist' is genius! I...More
