Totally disagree with Andrew Girvan and totally agree with T Bruce and Jude 1976, I too have seen this show and thought the boy's gave an excellent performance with lots of laughter from the audience. My family absolutely loved it and hope to see the boys go further in their theatre careers - Mandy Smith

I can't believe this guy is talking about the same show I saw a couple of weeks ago - where, myself and an audience of 70 strong enjoyed fast action storytelling, a highly comical script into which was added a number of great ad libs which set the audience off giggling even more. We loved it and judging by the standing ovation received so did the the rest of the house! - Tracy Bruce

This reviewer has got it completely wrong (i was sat near to him in the audience and saw he'd written in his book half the review before it was 5 minutes in!) he's decided not to like it, and thought this low-tech, get up and go compedy storytelling by young, fresh faced enthusiastic performers beneath him.
whats the point of reviewing if you're not going to offer something constructive? if you dont make theatre don't pretent to know how it should or shouldn't be made!
it's not perfect by any means, but it's nowhere NEAR bad or even 'average'; it's a piece of contemporary theatre/comedy by some really good performers trying to clearly work an act out. coming to edinburgh is exactly the best place to do that (it's the same as honing at a working mans club) and reviewers are here to speak constructively about the work to inform audiences that might like it (not those who wont); not just slag it off.
what poor journalism.
