USER: UK Theatre Web (10Mar01): A witty feast for theatrical pundits with sombre undertones and hysterical madcap antics. The first piece in the trilogy seems to miss the point and the director has made odd choices, the second and third are amazingly funny and dark in their humour. With a major reworking of the first piece I would be interested to see how this fared in a more prominent venue. Paul Henderson
