Plastered is wildly funny…I’ve rarely heard an audience identify so much
Sunday Independent – Perth

'A Triumph in light-touch comedy' - West Sussex Gazette

'A veritable silent film comedy done in real life, parodying all the dreadful things that go on in pubs and hospitals…[Trestle] makes TV comedy look very old fashioned' - The Times

Plastered was a witty and perceptive study of a rich  variety of characters, observed n that best of British institutions – the public house, and later, in the aseptic surroundings of the local hospital’s casualty department.

Released as Britain’s first 2 act, full mask play between 1984 and 1994 they performed over 350 performances in just 3 separate tours both at home and abroad to Europe and Australia. Heralded as a great success, Plastered also produced a large advertisement campaign containing your usual posters and flyers, but also specially branded Trestle beer mats and beer bottles.
