NotMoses the new comedy written and directed by Gary Sinyor is to close early.
The show opened on 15 March 2016 and had been due to run until 14 May 2016, but will now close 9 April 2016.
NotMoses received scathing 1 and 2 star reviews: “The cast strain under the sheer weight of lame gags” (Telegraph); “A handful of vigorous performances can’t stop NotMoses feeling like a wildly overextended five-minute comedy stretch” (Evening Standard), “Like a 1970s children’s TV comedy” (Financial Times), “a third-rate rehash” (Time Out) and “excruciating comedy” (The Stage)
Synopsis: “Set in Ancient Egypt, this is the story of a crying baby who is plucked from his basket by a Princess only to be dumped back in the Nile when she sees a nicer baby, Moses. NotMoses grows up a disgruntled slave whilst Prince Moses studies accountancy at Pharaoh’s court. When both men are forced to flee into the Sinai desert, they make kebabs on the burning bush before the Good Lord himself orders them to lead the Jews out of bondage and into a land full of cows and bees. Eventually, it’s the alluring Miriam – a woman! – who leads the Exodus.”
The cast includes Antonia Davies (Aviva), Dana Haqjoo (Pharaoh), Greg Barnett (NotMoses), Jasmine Hyde (Princess), Joe Morrow(Feripoti), Thomas Nelstrop (Moses), Niv Petel (Rameses) and Leon Stewart (Rabbi). Danielle Bird (Miriam), Izzy Lee and Theo Mackenzie alternate voice of Son of God.
