I (Honestly) Love You (Lockwood Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

‘Boy meets girl in a coffee shop’ just got a big massive kick up the backside. Lockwood Productions take the tired format and inject a kooky twist whereby neither boy nor girl can tell even the tiniest fib. Cue a hilarious, fast-tracked romp through excruciating first dates, first sex with very honest feedback and parents hearing exactly what they don’t want to hear. After an unstoppable first half, the gags slow up and you’re left hankering for more panto-style silliness, though this will probably step up with bigger, rowdier audiences. A playful but astute comment on who we are and what we say (and yes, your bum does look big in that).

C aquila, until 13 Aug, 5.05pm.
