The Duck House: Review


The Duck House 
For our 5th Wedding Anniversary we booked ourselves tickets to see The Duck House at the Vaudeville Theatre. We booked a matinee performance so we could be back home for about 6pm as Mr P's Mum and Dad took us out for dinner and paid for it... Thank you very much.

We booked to see The Duck House as it had Ben Miller in and we loved seeing him in Death in Paradise, the BBC1 TV show. I don't normally go and see shows like this, I normally go and see musical shows like Fame but I was up for seeing something new. A lot of people at Mr P's work told him about it, so we thought why not, we like the cast (well Ben Miller as that's the only person we knew, lol).

The Show 
The show is about the MP expenses scandal with Millions of pounds bring spend on second homes.
and the Duck house that one MP spent the tax payer money on.  It is all based about around one MP who calmed for everything, and would do anything to keep his seat.

The show only has 6 cast members in it: Ben Miller, Nancy Carroll, Debbie Chazen, James Musgrave, Simon Shepherd and Diana Vickers (I think she was in the X Factor).


My View
All the cast work really well together, but other than Ben Miller being the best one out of the lot, the house keeper Ludmilla was so funny. Every time she came on stage with every word that came out her mouth was pure laughter. If you like Ben Miller in a sexy way you get to see him in his boxers, hehe.
Overall the show was great with some very rude bits. I loved the first half more then the second half as I thought it was more funny and the second half was more rude. If you don't like swearing it's not for you, but if you don't mind it go and see it. I don't think it's on for that much longer though. I will leave a link for you down below.
