One of the most imaginative shows for the young you will find. Highly sophisticated and great fun… the children – and the adults – loved it!
…An absolutely brilliant piece of work. Juxtaposing new technology with handmade toys, this performance was inspired, funny, dark, theatrically clever and sophisticated. ……I strongly recommend you should see it if you get the chance.
…simply enchanting…The pacing is deft and Johnston’s vocal feats a marvel. By the end the children’s participation is guaranteed, and they stream from the theatre with radiant faces.
