SEASON'S GREETINGS REVIEWS/CAST VIDEO

"...That's my thumb!!!"

Photo National Theatre

5* "...This sense of another generation claiming Ayckbourn as their own is reinforced by stand-up comic Marc Wootton as Neville's underling Eddie, who plays the best drunk scene since Design For Living at the Old Vic earlier this year, but on his own, lumpenly out for the count while his pregnant wife Pattie (Katherine Parkinson) lifts him around the set, causing only more damage."
