Donkeys' YearsFans of Michael Frayn's famous farce Noises Off may want to head out to the Rose Theatre Kingston for this revival of his 1970s comedy Donkeys' Years. A group of middle-aged men have come together for their university reunion dinner, suited and booted and ever-so-upstanding. Until they start drinking, that is, when the years roll back and they regress to their student selves, with all the rivalries and embarrassing behaviour that entails. The fact that a beautiful woman from their collective past is secretly waiting for one of them in their old rooms can only complicate matters. Expect quick-witted dialogue and some fast-paced farce.
