Wallowing in a Muddy Marvelous Revival, whippersnappers Tim FitzHigham and Duncan Walsh Atkins are flying the flag with this winning celebration. The songs remain masterfully comic compositions…if you think Eminem is the last word in lyrical dexterity listen to FitzHigham ? a younger, sexier Richard Stilgoe for admirers of cabaret with impeccable manners these Swann songs certainly fit the bill

EVENING STANDARD


Astute wit and ingenuous wordplay – a great British tradition

THE GUARDIAN


Marvelous. One enchanted evening

THE EXPRESS


Such energy and relish…Well worth seeing

THE INDEPENDENT


Chaps don’t have to play rugger any more and Nigel Molesworth’s “gurls” are running the show but there’s still plenty of vim in the songs of Flanders and Swann
