Ronnie and Jonny: Friends Disunited

Ronnie and Jonny: Friends Disunited

★★☆☆☆ Disjointed
There is an interesting premise behind Ronnie and Jonny, the comic play from Steve Griffin and Keith Muddiman at 48 Below underneath the Phoenix in Broughton Street. However, its story is not sufficiently worked out, and it is only intermittently funny.
