Theatre: The Three Lions.....
Presented by Rosie Bowen for PBJ Management and Jenny Topper
By William Gaminara
A footballer, a prince and a prime minister walk into a hotel room…..
This hilarious new comedy offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of diplomacy in action, revealing what really went on between David Cameron, David Beckham and Prince William in a Swiss hotel the night before England’s bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In spite of missed planes, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and sartorial challenges, they are determined to bring the beautiful game home. But when things start to go disastrously and deliciously wrong, three heads may not be better than one!
As you can see they did a great job of casting look-alikes but they were also brilliant actors capturing the accents and tones of each voice and including all the little mannerisms that you don't actually realise these people have in real life until you see it on stage. The script was truly hilarious and we all laughed out loud all the way through.
The only misfortune to a very entertaining and uplifting evening was as I dropped off Trish just a few doors down from my house, I clipped the kerb but obviously at the wrong angle and limped my car up onto my drive and into my garage. Hubby went to have a look and says I've knocked the tyre off the wheel and now have a flat grrrr. Told you it was a stressy week!
