” George Stagnell, fresh from his First World War one-man show Private Peaceful, is outstanding once more, this time as Cookey; Irish actor Carl Wylie effects a spot-on London accent as the jack-the-lad Merry; and Joe Sample’s rising talent is affirmed by his moving portrayal of Smudger. Thomas Lillywhite’s Bert and Adam Bruce’s Hank impress too in an ensemble whose performances carry such conviction.
Beryl Nairn’s Queenie opens and closes the play with thoughts from today, linking past and present. We shall indeed never forget and Bomb Happy is a truly fitting tribute.” York Press
