The Independent Culture
The sails creak, the timbers shiver and from a becalmed sea a shipful of grotesques stare back with wild grins. This is the extraordinary exterior from behind which Benchtours theatre company combine crude humour and crude politics, shooting down politicians, religion, self-help therapy, war, the media and rapist husbands. And behind the etraordinary facade there lurks a very ordinary script. Theatre Workshop, 34 Hamilton Place (venue 20), 031-226 5425. 3.30pm. To 29 Aug.
