The Book of Mormon is now a classic. Created by the writers of South Park – Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone – the comedy musical will have you in pieces; its funny. Really funny. With a ludicrous yet intelligent plot involving two very innocent Mormons travelling to Africa to realise their two year-long missionary rite of passage, expect not to expect anything.

Where? The Prince of Wales Theatre, Coventry Street, London W1D 6AS.
