Reviews

Jason Pennycooke as an over-the-top French maid and Alicia Davies as the hetero love interest, at one point swapping places in a smoke-filled dream sequence, also make their mark.

Neil McDermott as the spoiled Jean-Michel is easy on the eye and ear while it is Jason Pennycooke who hits all the right comic notes as the cheeky maid, Jacob.

Good old French farce follows with flying saucers of canapés, a lot of eye-popping and the tireless interventions of Jason Pennycooke’s queeny French “maid”.
