Description Neil Armfield directs this comedy of survival where, in a dangerous world, the person who can think and act the fastest wins. The Marriage of Figaro is comedy of survival, where, in a dangerous world, the person who can think and act the fastest wins. It is a glorious extended improvisation, in which life and theatre cross over and we are left reeling with vertigo.
