THEATRE



THE MATING GAME:
'Dominated by a side-splitting performance from John Clive... He is the funniest farceur to walk the boards of this theatre for many a year. Poised most of the time on the edge of despairing hysteria, his ever mounting anguish is a delight to behold his technique is masterly.'
DAILY MAIL

'A classic piece of comedy acting - especially as it contains a lot of serious thinking.'
SUNDAY TIMES

David Isaacs, COVENTRY EVENING TELEGRAPH.

'Brilliantly funny '
Tim Cook, EVENING ADVERTISOR.
