has got to be the funniest show I’ve seen in years. A sharp hilarious
satire translated almost directly from the original Italian.
all classics it has relevance to every age and country. From the
paranoid militant revolutionary groups to the paranoid militant
governments, dominating the news with their bombs and versions of
may have taken six times for Director Luca Giberti to get here but
what a credit to his vision and determination. The impressive professional
set design and lighting overshadowing the frenetic action of these
pawns in the hands of power.
undoubted star of the show is the quick-change antics of Brian Stewart’s
“the Maniac”. His ability to step in and out of each personality

performance by John Gaughan is the short-tempered “Inspector Bertozzo”
or “Tosh” for all those “The Bill” fans. His laughable attempts
to defuse the situation adding to the overall hysteria.
fantastic display of physical comedy comes from Benedict Morrison’s
“the Superintendent” or “Sebastian” look-alike for all those “Little
Britain” fans. So unlike the usual parts he gets to play!
to the fun is the menacing yet friendly Graham Alexander as “Inspector
Pisani” or “Bodie” for all those “The Professionals” fans. As one
of the Assistant Directors and the naive “the Journalist” Ulcca
Joshi Hansen must be congratulated. Always good for a laugh, Jack
Ream is the dim “Constable Luigi”.

Dignified as ever Aaron Costa-Ganis is “Constable Gianni”. See it
once, see it twice but never forget who’s in charge.
