Only days before seeing this slight but enjoyable West End transfer from the tiny Finborough, I got caught up in my own personal battle of crossing a line.

With just 59 minutes left to spend in one of my favourite haunts, I was refused entry because last admissions were an hour before closing time.

So when a romantic young couple, happily ensconced on a park bench watching the ducks, are suddenly divided by a new border being drawn between them – and forbidden to cross over by a military jobsworth - they definitely won my sympathy.

Entertaining though it is, Kieran Lynn’s short new play isn’t really much more than an over-extended comic sketch with serious undertones.

But the three performances are winning - Florence Hall’s  Olivia trying to keep up with the local politics which have suddenly seen her country split in two by a roll of tape, Tom Bennett’s laidback Arthur who fancies leading the easy life of a duck untroubled by important issues, and Marc Pickering as the goofy border guard in full combat gear  whose intransigence - and confusion over the functioning of his stun gun - far outweigh his brainpower.
