It's been a number of years since I caught that fabulous metaphysical lounge act, The Dream Express, but it's back for a brief stint at The Chocolate Factory and it's as funny and as fresh as ever. What struck me on this sitting was just how great the writing, by Len Jenkin, was. Steve Mellor and Deirdre O'Connell are Spin and Marlene, who are the divorced-but-still-appearing-at-a-motel-near-you duo. Their wise and witty banter, clever original songs and amusing covers make you long for a curtain call.
