I'm looking forward to seeing it soon. I've definitely never seen a West End version but was alarmed, after booking, to read that the Orange Tree had done this before, as I don't like to revisit a play unwittingly. Plus farce really isn't my thing and I don't go to all the Orange Tree's Xmas productions, but I have so far found that only they can override my aversion.
Billington gave it 4* I see.
As an Orange Tree regular what is your opinion of the fact they use Stuart Fox in almost everything they stage ? It seems he's been in dozens of things there since the 1990s. Personally I find that sort of continuity of casting interesting, like the days when you could see Michael Bryant in plays at the NT on a continuous basis.
