2019The cast Ross Townsend Green, Joseph Clowser and William Hastings were superb... I can't recommend going to see this enough

2016William Hastings makes a far too brief outing as Sir Charles Lucas.
Neil D'Arcy-Jones

2016The team breezed through a series of historical vignettes crafted with surreal, Palinesque wit with crisp characterisations and faultless timing

2016Hastings brings exuberance as a grotesquely garish Dame Trott. You cannot help but like him as a Heinz Beanz can.
