Provocative Play On The Bleakness Of Britain
Opening with a farcical simulated sex scene between a couple with less romance between them than a pair of rabbits, the tone is initially foolish and fun. The Anti-hero Tommy prances about in Union Jack boxer shorts and shares the wisdom of the teachings from The Gallagher Brothers' School Of Charm. However as the light-hearted lunacy gets replaced by the darker side of broken dreams and the plot unravels even the most odious characters attract your sympathies. A remarkably bewitching performance from the Marilyn Monroe character who dazzles the eyes whilst unnerving the mind. With sharp dialogues, innovative staging, melancholy monologues and singing, dancing and fighting, this drama has much in the way of entertainment.
