Reviews
"in her disguise as a boy, with a sharp haircut and a sock down her pants, she [Pippa Nixon] has more than a hint of the androgynous charisma of the young David Bowie, lithe, lean and fascinatingly enigmatic". Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph (25 April 2013).
"Three and a quarter hours later, it ends with the mother of all folky, Glastonbury-esque hootenannies. And in between, Maria Aberg’s production establishes itself as the funniest, most stirringly joyous - and truly ensemble - take on this lovely but tricky comedy since the all-male Cheek By Jowl version over twenty years ago". Paul Taylor, The Independent (25 April 2013).
