Colour of Nonsense Reviewed

Extracts from this document...


Forkbeard Fantasy - The Colour Of Nonsense On the 25th November 2009 our drama group saw the play The Colour Of Nonsense, in the North Wall professional theatre in Summertown, Oxford. It was a production performed by an independent theatre company. The genre of the piece was slapstick comedy, and set in an office in a city.
