Thank you for a funny and enjoyable show. It was a family trip out to the theatre ages 50 plus , 21 and 24 We all enjoyed it and found the characters well played and kept our attention and smiles. Not something we’d rave about but would recommend

I would have liked to rave about Groan Ups but I was disappointed. I think the actors were brilliant as they usually are. We have seen Play that goes wrong and Peter Pan goes wrong. The beginning was very promising. The cast were young children acting as children do..watching them was very funny...The scene then changes with the cast as teenagers. This is where I feel the whole play changes direction and becomes more of a story and trying to get laughs exploring adolescent behaviour and attitude..sexual talk, exploration of teenage feelings, sexual orientation become a focal point which leaves you feeling uncomfortable for family viewing..The comedy becomes a side line to the story as opposed to being its sole purpose. Moving onto adulthood the characters all meet up again at a school reunion. Everything comes to a head as past issues are brought back to be dealt with...The play shows how things in the past can affect your life and shapes the person you become..this is all well and good but not expected from the Mishief company..If you want a play with out and out laughs that are constant with silly humour as previous plays you won't find it here...
