"It’s a must-see: friendly, frenetic and so funny that the person next to me was crying with laughter throughout. Before anyone had even spoken, the show’s most distinctive element was already obvious: the props. A whole array of objects were set at the back of the stage, on a hat-stand and table, teasing the audience as to what might happen next – what could a toy plastic boat or a President’s portrait possibly be useful for? Every couple of minutes, the two actors would go to the back of the stage to take out their props for the next part of the sketch – before long, confusion was morphed into laughter. This motif gave a wonderful impression of spontaneity: it was slick enough to seem funny but not so polished as to seem blandly rehearsed. It gave plenty of scope for improvisation, made each joke as surprising as the last, and created an atmosphere of warm, genuine humour. The show’s welcoming feel was also helped by the way the actors sparked off one another, and included the audience in their daftness. At various points in the show, someone would be required to fill a role – often one which two male actors couldn’t quite do – and so someone would be plucked from the audience, handed their prop and told what to say. This kept the audience on their toes, and built upon the fantastic rapport between the two actors: one younger and energetic, full of witty asides, the other more mellowed and measured, keeping everything moving. Though there were only two of them, their enthusiasm easily filled the whole church. Remarkably, in amongst all the mayhem, we were given a clear and concise overview of the whole of Genesis and Exodus. The show was true to the Biblical narrative at every twist and turn, but also wallowed in the bizarre and brilliant details: look out for the introduction to Joseph and all his brothers, and re-enactment of Moses and the Burning Bush. Typically, an adaptation has to compromise on either accuracy or humour; in this case, however, the two were seamlessly and superbly combined"
