Evangeline van Holsterin has assumed the role of Luxuria of the Satin Sheets, which ain't half expensive even though her vile nephew Throgmorton got them cheap up at the Hospital. Look at how carefully tigris is rolling the sheets up in her role of Superbia Queen of Hearts. I think she should do farmyard impersonations in this role but the punters don't like it, apparently.
Smut reprises his breakthrough role as Robin Falsenose and you can see how seriously he takes it by the two spare false noses on his belt. Note also the cunning arrangement at the top of boots for liquid refreshments during his punishing 35 minutes on stage in the first half, when he wins the archery contest by splitting a herring six ways.
The pivotal scene shown here is the unmasking of Bro Murdoch the book eater. This is followed by an energetic rendition of chasing him around the theatre whacking him with phone books. It is a laugh-a-minute extravaganza and there are smoked fish on crackers at half-time.
