SashaQ - happysad and 'slightly mad'

Interesting - I'm not familiar with this production, but I can imagine the comic potential from your descriptions of the personalties in the troop! I used to watch am dram at least once a year until the venue where the local troop played was condemned as unsafe - everything was not always rosy behind the scenes, but nowhere near this level!

I learned a lot from this - just a few bits I wasn't clear about.

Sandra Wilkinson is a fictional niece of Dame Diana, or is claiming to be a niece? Ah! Dame Diana appeared as a narrator - excellent!

"two one inseparable elves" - something missing there?

" finally concluding that it is family." - it is a family issue that caused Bella to ask for help?

"the very highest televised comedy" - is 'high' a technical term here?

Great concluding section smiley - ok

If you're in the UK the 6-episode series is currently on the iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000csgq/the-goes-wrong-show-series-1-1-the-spirit-of-christmas but only clips from the Christmas episode are still on there.
'two x one inseperable elves' – something missing there?
Yes – one smiley - elf. Only one of the two inseparable elves make it onto the stage, with the script keeping emphasising how inseparable the two of them are.
I don't know if the STRIKE shows in new-fangled h2g2 so I've reworded that bit.
