See it if if you have children who think acrobatics at bedtime are fun
Don't see it if if you like your kids need a plot
"This lively piece was created some years ago but it is still delightfully fresh and seems new-minted for every performance...The whole thing is played out as spirited breakdance, not just going 'Boing! Boing!' as they bounce on the bed but leaping and spinning, somersaults and twisting all over. It makes it all very exciting...This is the simplest of ideas done beautifully under Cookson’s direction and it is delightful."
"Director Sally Cookson’s idea is beautifully simple and completely genuine in the way it addresses a well known problem faced by many pre-schoolers: the Christmas Eve nerves...Audience appeal is in evidence from start to finish...At 50 minutes, the piece is well-pitched to the target group’s attention span...Carefully thought-through and always light on its feet, 'Boing!' has a sense of accomplishment and dramaturgical coherence that is rarely found even in grown up theatre."
