In this uplifting comedy, loosely inspired by the world-famous cheese-rolling in Gloucestershire, people plummet down a deadly hill in pursuit of a speeding Double Gloucester cheese. Anarchic and hilarious, it’s the “English Book Of Mormon”, according to one critic. With sumptuous songs by Patrick Steed and Mike Stocks, it features gorgeous and unforgettable characters who all have their deeper reasons for risking life and limb for, er, cheese. After all, eventually in life, you have to leap!
