'...Lending further weight to the increasingly watertight argument that the Unicorn is the place to be for theatre of the utmost quality, whatever your age.'
A Younger Theatre
‘Purni Morell's production is a startlingly imaginative and modern piece of contemporary theatre that parents will enjoy as much as their over-fours.'
