We're Not In Brixton Anymore

Three guys sit in God's waiting room, coming to terms with the fact they've slipped off this mortal coil and try to figure out who they need to apologise too in order the gain access to heaven.

Andrew Shakeshaft's comedy, We're Not In Brixton Anymore, is at time dark, at times slapstick, but most of all an intelligent piece of writing worthy of BBC 3.

Ian Smith brings the qualities of a physical comedian to the role of Bernie, driver of the car the night he a friend Tony, played by Lewis Jones, die horribly. The third in the line up is Charlie, skilfully acted by Gethin Alderman. Charlie is the odd one out in this situation until the real reason for his presence is revealed in the closing scenes.

This is comedy somewhere between The Smoking Room and Dogma, and probably undersold in the title and poster. Bernie's breakdown is hilariously well done by Smith and Jones gives an awesome performance during the Casablanca spoof.
