Directed by Peter Wellington (Joe's So Mean To Josephine), SLINGS AND ARROWS is based in the fictional town of New Burbage where legendary theatrical madman Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross) returns to the New Burbage Theatre Festival, the site of his greatest triumph and most humiliating failure, to assume the Artistic Directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles. When Geoffrey arrives he finds that Oliver is still there, in spirit anyway, and with his guidance (and often in spite of it) Geoffrey attempts to reconcile with his past while wrestling the Festival back from the marketing department. Despite a bitter leading lady, a clueless leading man, and a scheming General Manager, he manages to stage a remarkable production of Hamlet
the play that drove him mad.

Superb series, and the box set exceeded expectations
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/05/2008 20:09:52
Slings And Arrows is ruthlessly funny, yet endearing. An unusual, unpredictable series in its comedy, setting, characters, dryness (=compliment), maturity and surreal elements. Story arcs that reach throughout multiple seasons; a world that's unsparingly crafted and "whole" enough to reveal new nuances, details and insights on each repeat viewing. The actors are in a league of their own.
One of the very best offerings of this decade of television. (And if you don't think the 00's are already a TV Nirvana, you're watching the wrong shows.)
