This remarkable show features a host of wonderfully grotesque characters and is written and performed by the talented Simon McCoy.
Little Lesley may look like a buck-toothed, four-eyed geeky school boy but in his world he is the son of a timelord, born to save mankind from the daleks. When his mother packs him off to St Ursula's School for the Unwanted he realises this must have something to do with his important mission. We watch as innocent Lesley is drawn into the strange goings on amongst the wacky and sinister staff. The live performance is cleverly interspersed with video diary footage to great comic effect.
This show is entertaining from start to finish. The story of Lesley's adventure is compelling and there is always the threat of things going disastrously wrong for this likable, yet socially inept hero. Simon McCoy shares Steve Coogan's skill in presenting the dark side of his morally flawed creations. The characters are brilliantly diverse but all share Lesley's memorable gnashers. I still haven't worked out if they're real! This is great theatre that would also translate well to TV. If the BBC or Channel 4 don't snap him up they'll be missing a trick.
