06.09.10 – Top notch farce

I’ve already watched quite a few shows at the Edinburgh Fringe (and was dragged up on stage as a guest cast in one particular show for longer than I expected – hello, I paid for the show?!).

So, should I be spending again on shows while in London? Then, I remembered L’s recommendation of The 39 Steps at the Critereon Theatre.

I simply couldn’t resist farce.

And I was not disappointed! High-speed car chase, fast-paced action, shadow play, energy-filled dialogue, thrilling spy noir peppered with Hitchcock allusions, Monty Python-esque performance with multi-characters all presented by a mere cast of 4 in a whirlwind of razzle dazzle where the plot is irrelevant.

Highly entertaining!
