The Church Of Trauma is tailor-made to suit the believer - Hindu, Buddhist or atheist, there's a personal plan to suit you.

Sounds great in theory. The only hitch is that some of its teachings may leave you cold, mainly due to the fact that some of the sketches were overlong or a little flat.

Not all was lost, however. The really promising moments came when Simon Plotkin and Dougie Walker's writing and direction ventured into the atypical, such as the part in which a narrator censors certain scenes of violence and scatological images, and Mad Dogs And Englishmen, where the actors read out the stage directions, deliberately fall out of character and entertainingly act as actors.

Although some jokes missed their mark, Trauma stands out for its original ideas and its clever play with the trappings of conventional theatre.
