Reviews from Edinburgh Festival

Comedy and classical music rarely marry up, but Classical Mayhem’s sixty minutes of quick-fire hilarity set to extracts from great composers makes for a perfect union, as highly entertaining as it is original.’
The Stage****

'...equally enjoyed by children and adults alike. It is well worth a visit - you won’t regret it!'

‘Well-written, well-performed and with a perfect balance of smart dialogue that grown-ups will love, and enough silly, zombie chat for the kids.’
The List****

'The success of this show is largely due to the two actors playing Will and Igor, whose remarkable stage presence and sense of comic timing contribute to engaging and amusing the audience throughout the show.'

'The cast of two give a delightfully endearing performance, and I feel sure they could be setting up a life-long love of classical in at least some of the children they perform to.'

The Story

Decomposed is a brilliantly moving play, told in a very silly way!

Identical twins and a soundtrack of great classical music recorded by the world-class London Symphony Orchestra, this family show takes you on a journey through classical music with the odd operatic outburst!

Fate has deemed fit to reunite dysfunctional twins: Will, a failing orchestral conductor and control freak, and Igor his smelly doppelganger. In close proximity after ten years, the combination of their polar personalities spells trouble. Can Will overcome his own ego and turn his life around to save his brother from turning into a total gaming Zombie?  

Written by Roly & Tim Taylor, directed by Chris Larner with material from Cal McCrystal [One Man, Two Govnors]
