This was the production which 10 years ago put Kneehigh theatre company onto the world stage and whilst we are now used to the hallmark musicians on the side of the stage, the physical performers and the occasional circus/vaudeville moments which have no connection to the plot or action this show still holds its own. Beautifully creative moments where the girl paints her feet and then they are washed off; where the compare in drag narrates himself into the story and the actors use their props with great effect. Worth a visit – but not suitable for children.
A note about the space at Warwick Arts Centre. We were in Row B at the side and we were looking up at everything. Not as bad as row A but still the side seats have a much reduced version of the show and these tickets should be reduced accordingly.
