Critic Reviews (2)

The Guardian (UK)
April 3rd, 2015
For a previous production

"There’s a comfortingly repetitious nature to the show that allows the children to relax and sink into the story...The combination of Peter O’Rourke’s cheeky puppet and Michael Keyamo’s spluttering sound effects is comic gold. Some of the kids are bent over with laughter, as this odd little creature scampers among them."

Children's Theater Review
February 25th, 2015
For a previous production

"This is a production for the senses. Sitting around the performing space, the audience are transported to a bright, warm day in Kenya by Sophia Lovell Smith’s set and lighting design. Songs in both Swahili and English provide the gentle rhythm underpinning the show. Fruit is handed around to feel and smell. The show makes you hungry, and ready to move and sing – so the chance to dance and have a bite to eat makes for a fruity finish."
