The Apollo’s December production is, unlike most current shows, nothing to do with Christmas, but its subject matter is almost as familiar as the nativity story to those over a certain age, as the script is derived from various episodes of the hugely popular TV series of the same name, cleverly stitched together to form…
The tone of the play shifted from laugh out loud comedy to subtle reflection and thought-provoking drama as the storyline progressed, but it never lost its pace nor its ability to find humour in the darkest of situations.
If you are looking for a really entertaining piece of drama, you could do far worse than to go along to the Apollo Theatre this evening (Saturday) to catch the final performance of ‘A Bunch of Amateurs’. From the applause and comments after the show, last night’s audience would agree.
The audience appreciation was plain to see from the laughter, singing along and delighted faces seen leaving the theatre after the show.
