How could anyone possibly capture the madness of The Goon Show and translate it onto the stage? How could you possibly tell the story of its madcap creators - the manic, crazy, talented Spike Milligan; Peter Sellers, and the comparatively sane Harry Secombe? Well Roy Smiles has done just that with his play.
Smiles has used Milligan's breakdown in 1960 to build a story of the individuals and of the show that is as engaging and madcap as any one of their scripts.
No one with a passion for the Goons will want to miss it - and the musical finale will have you singing "Ying-tong-iddle-i-po" all the way home.
