Saw the matinee today of this. Quite enjoyable. When its good its VERY good. Not completely original (*COUGHNOISESOFFDIDITFIRSTANDBETTERCOUGH*) but very impressive seeing as non of the cast/creative team were older than the millenium....

I'd say this covers virtually everything that Noises Off couldn't - the company in the play are amateur, so there's a lot more scope for dodgy sets/props/effects, dropped lines/bad acting. The two pieces compliment each other extremely well.

So is this one of those shows that has audience participation?
If I stay awake, it must be good.

I saw this last week - I had an American friend in town and wanted something short and sweet.  Simply wonderful.  Lots of laughs, well played. Recommended to one of my boys and he went back with his girlfriend last nigh and they loved it too.

No audience participation, and great fun. There were two children in the audience at the matinee today and it was lovely to see how they were enjoying it just as much as the adults!

Returns to Traf 2 in July, according to the ATG website. Hope to catch it this time around.

  Blimey! There were discounts and freebies almost every day last time round. Has something fallen through?

Possibly - but it wouldn't be returning unless it (at the very least) broke even last time around.
