This play is ghastly. It is both offensive to the music of Ian Dury - which is performed in the style of a Chaz 'n Dave singalong, and offensive to common decency, unless, of course, you enjoy exposing your children to 'blow-job' jokes. Avoid this rubbish at all costs. I wish I had. - C Rider

I think Anne Morley-Priestman is missing the point of this terrific show. Her curmudgeonly review might carry more weight if she'd managed to get Ian Dury's name right. It does have a very simple story, but it's one which puts Dury at the centre. As a celebration of his work and influence, and more importantly as a celebration of thirty years of Graeae's brilliant work, I don't think it could be bettered. The energy, commitment and joie de vivre of the whole company, not to mention the seamless integration of the signing and audio-description into the action are worth the ticket price alone, regardless of whether you know or like the music. Ignore the review, and get down there. - P Martin
