"It’s extremely winning and bubbling with good ideas, but despite the benefit of being able to tweak the text, Tang’s ‘Tempest’ ultimately feels like it runs aground on the requirements of being a truncated kids’ show."

“This Unicorn theatre co-production is snappily performed at 75 minutes without an interval, its dialogue staying faithful to Shakespeare’s verse but the diction a few beats slower and is a lovely introduction to Shakespeare and the natural surroundings of the venue add to its magic.”

“I wish the production had trusted its actors’ skills rather more. Its concept is so busy, it doesn’t leave enough space for imagination and engagement. It also reveals that when you strip ‘The Tempest’ of so much language and plot, there really isn’t much there. Better to write a new play for children rather than leave Prospero and his doings so thoroughly beached.”
