Real Classy Affair

Royal Court at the

Ambassadors, London WC2

Nick Grosso's latest funny take on lad culture contemplates the epic leap from North London to darkest Streatham. To the consternation of his ludicrously sharp-suited drinking pals,naively trusting Stan (excellent Nick Moran) plans to decamp there with his flirty, discontented wife Lou (Liza Walker). James Macdonald's meticulous, beautifully droll production trains a sceptical eye on the supposed strength of male bonding, and the play's treacheries brought to the surface with good running gags. A pretty classy affair.
