FringeReview UK 2018
An exuberant Christmas production, and a miracle of compression, blocking, set-design and ensemble acting skills.
Highly Recommended for monkeys and lemurs of all ages – quite apart from lions, zebras, hippos and giraffes.
This is sweet, fleet story-telling with just the right amount of pitch and yaw for anyone to take, without it becoming too dark or didactic. Ten-year-old Lola’s engaging, and in Natalia Hinds’ hands utterly believable, energetically inhabited with a sense of fun clearly relished by this revelatory actor.
The performing brio is phenomenal, of a standard you’d be happy to see anywhere in the world. So would any child.
