Scouse Pacific

I went with friends from Warrington on Saturday to see Scouse Pacific at the Royal Court. This comedy musical has been so successful that the run was extended until 15 January - but judging from the packed theatre - I'm sure it'll be back!

This story of a group of scousers marooned on a pacific island is very funny. But it is scouse-specific, so if you're a soft southerner you probably won't get it. There's a host of well known songs with new lyrics - Bohemian Rhapsody is superbly performed and hilarious.

It's Benidorm and The Royle Family with songs and a lot of use of the 'F' word - which I felt could have been cut-down.

Brilliant entertainment though!
