Review by Howard Loxton


'A wonderful play, with a well-balanced combination of humour, magical skills, feelings, and wonder. A fast paced, but very well written dialogue. Great, competent cast, and a real story, well worth to have been resurrected. Not to be missed.' 5***** Francesca , audience member
