The sleepy English village of Pressan Ambo has a secret. Ten years ago, Sir Francis Crewe, heir to
the local estate disappeared. Every year a young man is chosen by lot to go searching for him.
Alan Norman, accompanied by a surprisingly intelligent dog, sets out on a journey through pre-war Europe.

Part madcap misadventure, part piercing social satire.

“Good performances... Often feels too larky for its own good.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A curious thing... No matter how hard director Jimmy Walters huffs and puffs, he can't blow the cobwebs off this one.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Physical comedy is a magnet for cheap laughs but the redundancy played out by the cast obfuscates the meaning and satire.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“Instead of feeling unnervingly relevant... the play remains lodged in its pre-war period thanks to a very specific wit and tone.”

Rosemary Waugh (The Stage)
