When a nuclear bomb wipes out the rest of the world, it’s up to the residents of Fernborough to prevent the destruction of civilisation. Creating a mass of fun, eccentric characters, including a pie eating doctor accused of terrorism and ex-media mogul with a passion for hamsters, uncontrolled enthusiasm sometimes leads to even more over-the-top performances than the play requires. Like Dibley but wish it was a bit ruder? You’ll love this. (Nicola Husband)
