Football chants merge with Arctic Monkeys lyrics; a group of lads on the town slam into a girls’ night out. The four-strong cast are mesmerising to behold as they stagger, strut and stalk around the stage in utterly convincing portrayals taken from the whole spectrum of city night-life. It’s a flawless performance from start to finish, with Luke Murphy’s seemingly elastic spine adding further splendour to the inebriated excellence of their physical presence. It’s as energising as one-too-many double-vodka-Red-Bulls, but manages to equally convey the more important moments at its core, such as Rosie (George Chilcott) proving a source of both hilarity and well-tempered poignancy. The result is a multifaceted performance by a truly formidable cast.
