Two actors in bed looking happy and in love.

"The maximum amount of warmth and humour" - Live Bed Show Review

Posted on: Friday 25 June 2021

Tabs Productions present Live Bed Show at the Pomegranate Theatre until Sat 26 Jun 2021. 

Henson and Goodrum, who wear pyjamas throughout the show, direct themselves in a production which has plenty of pace so that you are in no danger of falling asleep. Henson brings passion and enthusiasm to the role of Maria, unsure of whether she wants to get involved in a new relationship and not always truthful about her intentions. Goodrum on the other hand shows Cash to be a typical male whose goal is to get Maria into bed—until he realises his feelings for her go far deeper.

The chemistry between the couple shines through as they negotiate a series of experiences including dream sequences in which they have not left their bed for nine years and getting locked in when visiting a shop to buy a new bed.

Smith’s play contains none of the subversiveness nor quirkiness that the stand-up comedian and presenter is usually noted for. Henson and Goodrum extract the maximum amount of warmth and humour from the script and give excellent performances of a comedy that can best be described as gentle rather than guffaw-inducing.
