 “Once in a while, you see a piece of work that completely stops you in your tracks and makes you sit slack-jawed at the extraordinary level of artistry playing in front of you. Mesmerising. A work of genius... Nardella's design is a memory trove of a theatrical archive."

WHATS ON STAGE ★★★★★

“I’ve never seen anything like this show. Funny… spellbinding… feels very special indeed” 

DAILY TELEGRAPH ★★★★

 “Truly memorable… a cerebral alternative to panto”

THE TIMES ★★★★

“All of this takes place in a dark, cluttered set designed by Justin Nardella, framed by diaphanous, billowing curtains and strewn with floating objects... an “imaginarium”, the “shared headspace” of the theatre. 

THE STAGE ★★★★ 

 

"Astonishing… lip-syncing for all our lives” 

GAURDIAN ★★★★
