Review by Graeme Strachan

Opening literally with a bang, this story quickly revealed its farcical nature after it became clear that the comedy policemen were arresting a man on account of murdering a child in a make believe game.

Unfortunately for the play, if there was any underlying message meant by this concept, it was utterly lost in the miasma of actions, yells and mummery occurring. If there had been no meaning to the plot, then this weird mixture felt like Dario Fo wandered into In the Night Garden on an LSD trip.

Despite the players doing some good work at points, the concept was incoherent even in its own farcical nature and as a result held neither the audiences attention nor their smiles for more than the briefest moments.
