A fluid spectacle that poignantly evokes the lasting and universal traumas of war
Simple8 specialise in creating theatrical riches on a shoestring
simple8 has managed to pull off a rather spectacular victory
This splendid new stage version is a transporting experience.
Terrific flair… Splendidly involving… committed ensemble work
A treasure chest of talented actors, impressive musicians and intelligent scripting and directing
A brilliant reminder that there are things of which theatre is capable, that film and television cannot replicate
The techniques of "poor theatre" have rarely been better employed... superb
It should put Simple 8 in the front rank of companies working in this country today.
a pungently evocative and blackly amusing masterclass in the art of poor theatre.
A company possessing the skills, dedication and intelligence to create wonder’
the eight-strong cast move swiftly and seamlessly through the scenes within this slickly directed production
An irresistibly fun interpretation: a haunted accordion of a show that sways and wheezes with its own demented energy.
Triumph of a teeming classic
A taught and ripping sea yarn... enchanting
A bold and brilliant stage adaptation
Three cheers to a brave, young company
