How was your experience?
Great show - funny & poignant. Some fantastic characters in the show and superb performances, particularly from the lad who played Billy. Not sure all US audiences will understand the socio-economic backdrop so I would reccommend reading the info provided before the show, it will help make things clear. One minor criticism. The story is based in Durham in the North of England. The accent is hard for a Brit to imitate let alone an American. Some of the accents were really really bad, might have been better to try for a more nuetral English accent. Still once I got used to them that didn't spoil the show. Well worth going to see, don't take kids though (13 & under) there is a lot of very strong language
