"A gift to children of all ages." The Stage for The Jungle Book (more?)

"Perfectly formed... recaptures the art of sharing folktales by the fireside"
The Stage for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)

"A truly magnificent and heroic performance... a howling success, the true meaning of Christmas theatre."
Liverpool Sound & Vision for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)

"A witty and intelligent production that engages adult and child alike... under Nina Hajiyanni's skilful direction, it alludes to Lemony Snicket and Roald Dahl with its ability to stimulate its young audience."
The Reviews Hub for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)

"Kevin Dyer’s play is one for all ages, a cleverly crafted moral fable that is thought-provoking but also a lot of fun. Subtler and more imaginative than most... it deserves to be a big hit"
Merseysider Magazine for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)

"The four strong cast are brilliant in their individual roles... strong in their storytelling and vocals. An atmospheric show which children cannot help but be drawn into."
Liverpool Arts Scene for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)

"Clever and original.. a great family outing for all ages to enjoy"
North West End for Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf (more?)
