Northern newlyweds in bedroom farce

Nigel Cole’s (Calendar Girls) amiable but uneven comedy milks goodhearted laughs from the predicament of a pair of innocent Northern newly-weds (the fetching Reece Ritchie and Amara Karan), whose noisy, nosy British Asian family inadvertently prevent them having sex.

Adapted by writer Ayub Khan-Din from his play Rafta, Rafta, its stagey mix of East Is East-style father/ son conflict and bouncy bedroom farce is endearing, though a tad stereotyped.

Thankfully Harish Patel and Meera Syal inject welcome energy, if little subtlety, as the groom’s over-exuberant dad and no-nonsense mum.
