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.

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. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
