The English way of life as the main context for this a little surreal story echoes in the genuine laugh and engagement with the audience.

London's Gielgud Theatre is designed in Louis XVI style and is in pair with Queen's Theatre on the adjacent street corner, which might soon share a joint entrance foyer with Gielgud Theatre since in 2003 it was announced that reconstruction is planned.
