My partner and I loved this show! It was incredibly funny yet also moving, we loved the jokes and the writing - I've seen some reviews saying the props were clearly cheap - sure they were, but that didn't distract from the hilarity and genuine camaraderie the show gave across. 10/10, and I can't wait to see what this company does next!

We really enjoyed this show! Surprised to see so many negative reviews as there was laughter all along the show when we came. Amazing performance from a comedic and acting standpoint and an easy storyline make for an enjoyable show. The venue is also pleasant and easily accessible from the city centre. Very nice night out and happy to recommend to all!

5 minutes in I was unsure but it just got better and better. We absolutely loved it! I’d probably agree with comments about the demographic this is aimed at, but as someone in their mid thirties I really enjoyed it. Some brilliant comedic performances, well done all involved!

I didn't "get" this piece either so I'm probably too old, too
The theme could have been used so much better with a different script
Some direction of the cast might also have helped. Though I doubt it.
Sorry, lads, this was my 2021 Fringe turkey

We didn’t really get the show, the characters weren’t developed and the acting felt a bit more like shouting. The plot was hard to follow. A number of people were laughing but I wondered if they knew the actors or maybe we were the wrong demographic.
Maybe most suited to the student age group.
