Theatre review: Spamalot, Bridlington Spa

I lost count of the theatrical tropes parodied by this production of Spamalot. Among others, a Sally Bowles pastiche with a figure frozen in a spotlight with hat and chair.
 Add to this mix some familiar Python gags – coconut halves for horses hooves; knights who like to say ‘ni’; Fisch Slapping Dance – and you begin to get a sense of the pace and energy of the writing and performing.
