Really awful. Lots of people walked out. Aimed at the elderly, which most of the audience was.

As big fans of the show on Radio 4 we knew what to expect and loved every minute of the show. Brilliantly done and so funny! It was enough in itself to see the show, but I am not sure when my husband will get over winning a praline Ritter Sport bar at the show for his contribution to the shop's crisp wall. FIVE ALIVE it's a great show!

Heard about this on a radio show prior to attending the Fringe so decided to book tickets. Certainly was not disappointed as the comedic content was excellent.
Made me a fan of the show so will be looking out for more of the same on BBC Radio 4 when the next series is released.

An opportunity to come face to face with the world of shop ;-) One for fans of the radio show and anyone else who thinks they might enjoy its mix of barbs, tangents and fundamental good-naturedness.

Laura Lamb 41 days ago

This was like watching an audition read-through, stilted, stereotypical and dull.

Excellent show, lots of laughs and great to meet some of the cast afterward. They are very happy to sign flyers and pose for photos. Looking forward to Series 9

The gentle humour draws you in, and there may be a few more people looking to find out when the show returns to radio. A great performance.
