Sitcom king Bob Larbey’s heart-warming comedy A Month of Sundays, the newly-opened Queen’s Theatre production, is receiving plenty of critical praise.
Popular reviews website London Theatre 1 has awarded the play an impressive four stars, hailing it ‘incredibly witty and enjoyable’.
Critic Chris Omaweng applauds the sensitive and humorous treatment of some of its ‘weighty’ themes and is full of admiration especially for the hilarious quick-fire repartee between central character Cooper (played by William Hoyland) and cleaner Mrs Baker (Connie Walker).
He concludes: ‘This is a production that has the warmth of a cup of tea received just after coming in from the cold on a wintry day, and the charm of a loving and loved grandparent with a heart of gold. Recommended.’
The Evening Standard’s Fiona Mountford is also full of praise: “It’s refreshing to see a comedy revival that tackles issues of ageing.”
