Description

A once-glamorous Scottish hotel is being sold to Donald Trump. Eccentric staff and celebrity guests conspire to prevent the sale. But first, if they are to succeed, a menacing mystery must be investigated. Lewis MacLeod (Dead Ringers, The Crown) and Ronni Ancona (The Big Impression, Last Tango in Halifax) unite their astonishing voice skills to create this surreal and dark story. However, when their characters take on a life of their own, talking back and interfering in the narrative, it becomes clear they are losing control over their own creations... and themselves!

Ronni Ancona and Lewis MacLeod are phenomenal at what they do, not only perfectly mimicking the stars, but also funnelling their personalities into firmly-drawn caricatures with engaging efficiency. ...

Daily Business Magazine (5/5 stars) 3 days ago

No set. Just two of the finest impressionists on the circuit and a convoluted script in which they take on characters who assume lives of their own and ultimately those of Ancona and MacLeod themselves.

It’s a fast and riotous hour which revolves around a plan by Donald and Melania Trump to acquire a once-glamorous Scottish hotel.

The Telegraph (3/5 stars) 6 days ago

The much admired Scottish front-woman of the too short-lived early Noughties BBC series The Big Impression joins forces with fellow arch impersonator (and compatriot) MacLeod.

Broadway World (3/5 stars) 14 days ago

Just Checking In is a comedy theatre piece by impressionists Ronni Ancona and Lewis MacLeod. It centres around the idea that a once prestigious hotel is being taken over by Donald Trump- and the elite guests are not happy about it. The storyline is pretty thin but it hangs in...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 14 days ago

Celebrity impression shows have a Marmite-esque quality: whether they are a hit or a failure depends largely on their consumer and there is rarely an 'in between'. They rely on an audience’s shared knowledge and ability to recognise an impersonation in order to work at all, and without this mutual...
