The young intellectual Nico is uncontrollably addicted to museums. His carefree gay housemates, Sam and Eli, decide to solve the problem by locking Nico in. He's angered. They're the real addicts (it's drugs for them). When Nico's parents set him free, he plans his cunning revenge. After a period of chaos and complaints about museum café prices, the housemates try a compromise. They'll combine their addictions by going to a museum on LSD. A farcical comedy that takes its tone partly from Aristophanes' Wasps, partly from Peep Show. And there's a constant stream of sex jokes.

Attending fringe events/plays is knowing that some might be hits and some might be misses. This is a hard miss. It’s a bunch of spoiled, privately educated Oxford students pretending to be actors and pretending to put on a play. The acting was abysmal, the jokes were just not funny, the story was void of any meaning.
Pretty sure this was bankrolled by the bank of mum and dad.
The only redeeming feature of this “play”, is that it would come in handy if someone decided to build a case to introduce some kind of quality control at the fringe.

This show made me honk out loud with laughter several times -- there's something charming about watching actors just have fun on stage, whether it's because of low-hanging fruit puns, wordplay that made me swear out loud as soon as I saw the punchline coming, and actors straight up corpsing and pushing through anyway. Go in ready to laugh, to groan (puns, man, I love them), and to remember -- if you take things too seriously in life, your friends just might stage an intervention with unexpected consequences.

Genuinely think this play might have been some sort of money laundering scheme from some Oxford students wanting a free trip to the Fringe. Only funny in the - how was something so underwritten and badly acted allowed to be shown on stage - sense. I would feel bad about writing a bad review for a show I thought the company actually cared about putting on a decent show, but the actors were laughing throughout so they definitely knew it was awful.

This show lives rent free inside of my brain. I had no idea what to expect coming in but I ended up howling with laughter the entire time. It was stupid in the best way - I had no idea what was coming at any point and I was completely surprised with everything that happened in the story. This is a very talented group and I cannot recommend this more highly. You need to see this, you will not believe it.
