Sigmund Freud meets Salvador Dali, and the result is comedy chaos. The serious world of real life and death, the world of art, science and the human mind is swept up in the crazy world of theatrical farce. Terry Johnson’s brilliant creation achieves a rare balancing act. Alarming subjects and events are filtered through high-jinks comedy entertainment. It’s a play that’s always sparkling and witty, often descending into low farce, but somehow it is also thought-provoking and deeply touching. A modern classic and a great experience. It makes you laugh, think and feel, often at the same time.
