I have followed the National Theatre of Brent through a great many productions and a good number of cast changes (other than Wallace, that is) but this is the high point. The format is as old as the double-act: the idiot who knows everything and the idiot who knows nothing. The two of them (Desmond Olivier Dingle & Wallace) always alone and always in modern day suits whether they are enacting epic battle scenes or intimate romantic encounters.
Revolution!! combines laugh-out-loud pompous idiocy, manic flailing improvisation and, at times, genuinely involving and moving moments. This is the peak of their absurdity, and a better insight into history than many a serious drama. Catch it if you can.
