Anna Morris: Would Like to Thank

This is character comedy at its best. Anna Morris portrays five characters within the framework of a mythical Woman of the Year Award. Our 'host' is the Sloaney Georgina Francis with her wide vowels and narrow mind, followed by four wickedly horrendous over-the-top contenders for the award: Nina, a loud mouthed Liverpudlian fitness instructor; Jane, a nervous narcotic baker; Keva, a foreign correspondent and Alexi, a revolutionist.

Anna Morris Would Like To Thank is a fun, entertaining hour that I and the audience both enjoyed. It is well worth popping out to see.

All are amusingly brought to life by Morris with the assistance of a few props and simple costume changes. The use of multimedia throughout gives an added dimension to the proceedings, and the short filmed sections are well shot and comically entertaining. They don't outstay their welcome, and Morris doesn't rely on them.

Although short sung musical elements of the piece are wittily chosen, they are poorly executed – even within the context of the character study.

Audience participation is minimal, harmless and fun, and was perfectly relevant to the construction of the piece, with quick-witted retorts to the audience from Morris in character. In true Saturday Night TV style, the audience gets to pick the winner of the Award.

Anna Morris Would Like To Thank is a fun, entertaining hour that I and the audience both enjoyed. It is well worth popping out to see.

The character comic, and star of BBC1's Outnumbered, returns as four comedy creations battle for your vote. Four women. One award. Who'll be crowned Woman of the Year? You decide. 'Spot-on, darkly comic characters... Morris is comedy gold' (Huffington Post). 'An exceptional comedy performer' **** (Skinny). 'Great comedy... beautifully crafted' (Independent).
