Went to see this show in Cardiff... Seemed low budget after recent London shows. Decko was very poor and had the worst Irish accent I've ever heard

The acting was amateurish and the language used was crude - a continuous barrage of swearing. The singing improved as the show progressed but did'nt get the audience on its feet until the last 10 minutes - disappointing when you pay over £50.00. a ticket.

We left at the interval and that was longer than we could stand!! Poor acting and actors who seemed to think that shouting swearing and posturing were a substitute for real acting. If you want to see Roddy Doyle work at its best see the...More

I can't say that I noticed it in the movie or the play to be honest. If it did it went over my head so I can't comment.
