Critic Reviews (5)

The New York Times
April 24th, 2017

"Loopy, lovely and almost impossibly good-humored...The company has made a lot of cuts in 'The Winter’s Tale'...Not much of the original story is left...There was very little clamoring, a testament to the company’s talent and care. If you have a child or have been a child, you’ll know that kids are a tough crowd...Oily Cart understands this, which is why they keep 'In a Pickle' friendly, focused and fast-moving."

British Theatre Guide
December 14th, 2016
For a previous production

"A cleverly crafted original, not watered-down Shakespeare...It is a show full of visual, aural and contact experience, as delightful for accompanying adults as for its target audience, but, like all Oily Cart performances, is guided by careful observation of audience members to approach them in a way that is welcome and sensitive to individual responses."

Children's Theater Review
December 24th, 2016
For a previous production

"Though not much of the original play remains, Oily Cart’s version brings Shakespeare to life, with the audience engaging as collaborators and interacting with characters; guiding the action as they suggest ways to soothe and look after the newly found infant...Though Shakespeare for the very young might seem an impossible challenge, it is skillfully met and mastered by Oily Cart in what continues to be a rich, gorgeous production."

For a previous production

"A joyous theatrical experience for children ages 3 – 5 and adults alike...A wondrous boat journey across a magical ocean ensues, and little hands can even explore fish-filled pools of water as we travel. Oily Cart really are masters at immersive, original and important theatre-making for young audiences. Not only that, they really cater to the grown-ups too. This story was moving and magical. Who says 3 isn’t the perfect age to fall in love with Shakespeare?"

December 23rd, 2016
For a previous production

"The interaction between the characters on stage was full of warmth and silliness, and easily appeals to our emotions...The show sparkles with the sharpness of its imagination and the clarity of its design, and it is for this reason that watching is a delight for children and adults alike...It was a reminder of how good and useful immersive theatre can be...As a result of the intelligent relationship created between performer and audience, the show resonates on many levels."
