Tara Zubairy (30Jul15): If you don't see this play t hen you are missing out completely. My 9 year old son and I sat at the front of the show and we were transfixed. I am an English and Drama teacher and without a doubt this one of the most superb and entertaining pieces of theatre I have been lucky enough to see. The acting was amazing, the directing, music and atmosphere was extraordinary. GO AND SEE IT!!!
