Multi-character comedy not really based on Enid Blyton tale
If you’re looking for a family-friendly rendering of an Enid Blyton tale, beware – this isn’t it. Instead, the supremely silly boys of Sleeping Trees Theatre have concocted a multi-character comedy with only the slenderest of roots lodged in Blytonian soil. The pacing is frantic, the actors quick-witted and the language occasionally profane – and so much the better for it.
Just The Tonic at the Caves, 556 5375, until Sun 28 (not 17), 1pm, £4 (£3).
