Brick up the Mersey Tunnels

The last comedy we went to see was Alan Ayckbourne’s Bedroom Farce at  Venue Cymru in Llandudno.  And a farce it was too – but not in the sense the producers intended!  We walked out of the poorly acted production well before half time.

Last night was very different.  It was a last minute decision to go and see Brick up the Mersey Tunnels and boy, are we glad we did!

The only seats left were in the front balcony at Liverpool’s magnificent Royal Court Theatre (a real theatre as opposed to the characterless “boxes” they build today).  The high viewpoint didn’t impair our enjoyment one bit.  The wonderful scouse humour on stage was at times matched by the heckling as the story unfolded about the cultural divide between the Wirral and Liverpool.

Jaws were well and truly aching by the end of the night.  this was a wonderfully wicked comedy.  Catch it if you can.
