T
August 12th, 2014
For a previous production

“Tall Stories return...with the latest of their picture book page to stage adaptations...The tale is told with the highest production values, the set provides plenty of surprises and the use of puppetry helps the story progress without the use of clunky scene changes...The music is a little bland and forgettable but service the production well. Tall Stories have always produced engaging, energetic, and appealing theatre and ‘Emily Brown and the Thing’ carries off that tradition with aplomb.”

What's On Stage (UK)
October 28th, 2014
For a previous production

“The whole story centres around children and bedtime...Jacobs opens the show with short sound bites from children about sleeping and then closes the show with more audio about dreaming. This special touch creates a pleasing context for the story...The cast of three are all equally strong...By incorporating repetitive music, humour, and physical theatre and running at just under an hour, it succeeds in keeping the little ones entertained for its duration.”

For a previous production

“A delightful children’s show...It’s clever, colourful, deceptively simple and a gentle masterclass in the art of storytelling with a production which works well on different levels...Into the mix are thrown puppets or rather dolls, and there is no clever sleight of hand...It’s all down to imagination and children have it in spades...A beautifully acted production, with some nice harmony singing...Simply and imaginatively told...It will charm and enthrall children of all ages.”

January 5th, 2017
For a previous production

“This stage adaptation is charming and watching the book come to life in a dynamic performance was such fun... Putting Alice and Mudie together created a dynamic duo that filled the stage with hair raising adventures and warm humour...Very young audiences may find it a bit long but the performance always seemed to pull children back into the fold...An entertaining piece of theatre with talented actors and a heart-warming story to hold it all together.”
