Wardens (Schadenfreude Productions Limited)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2013

Three traffic wardens, a chemist, and a community support police officer in a hostage situation; yes, it does sound like the beginning of a joke, and yes, this show definitely is a laughing matter! The people have had enough, riots have broken out and the traffic wardens are the target of their rampant anger; even the police seem to be set against them. This excellent satire is full of comical characters, witty one liners and the truth about what it’s like to work in Britain’s most despised profession. If you hate traffic wardens, then you’ll love this riotous show, and who knows, you might even begin to feel a little sympathetic. Maybe.

Assembly Roxy, until 26 Aug (not 14), 3.30pm.
