Editors Choice Award () (VoiceMagUK)'Polished, Classy and Bloody Funny!" (BritishTheatreGuide)Wonder World Cruises has a heartwarming corporate message for you in these trying times. Now they just have to convince this group of underpaid and under-talented actors quarantined on board to film it. Watch the mayhem unfold in their final Zoom rehearsal before they go live! The virtual 'origin story' of the live show set to premiere in Edinburgh this August, in which these actors learn that a powerful Hollywood agent is aboard and embark on a doomed journey to impress him with a production of Hamlet. Add in a tyrannical cruise director, an emotionally abused waiter, and a sickly little girl who doesn't take no for an answer, and you get this high-spirited and heartfelt experience, proving that anyone can chase their dreams, even wearing a weasel costume.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
