Carry On Brighton Quotes: Review From Men In Lycra (on-line) from the run at Pentameters Theatre:

“what better way to spend your Sunday than to laugh with childish insanity along with a very interesting bunch of people”

“I left the theatre drunk on fun – and no, there was not a sambuca shot in sight!”

“If you’ve missed this play then shame on you!”
