Refreshing, Delightful, Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy a very creative show about the environment. Wonderful use of puppetry, music and dance. Great for kids and adults.

Don't see it if you don't like children in the audience. This is a children's theater but they were very attentive to this show.

Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

See it if I expected a great puppet show. This show may be great for kids as an adult I was painfully bored. The old man next to me was sleeping.

Don't see it if If you are an adult without a child you will be painfully bored and think about your plans after you break free from turtle island.

The Theatre Times
March 8th, 2019

"The play imagines a world in which figures from First Nations mythology coexist with contemporary ecological concerns and an urban landscape...Diversity is woven into every aspect of this show, from the range of musical styles to the variety of puppetry techniques...A talented puppeteer and singer, Henry is above all a storyteller, and this is her role both in the world of the play and on the stage...The show’s finale is a spectacular display of technical virtuosity."
