whats on @ BATS....

"Though it is a short (opening) scene many of its elements herald and exemplify the many attractions of this elegant and well-humoured show."

"...superior puppetry and movement in which large numbers of objects from household furniture to exquisite rush boats become animated characters in this story of life from birth to death"

"...what is abundantly clear is that this is adult theatre that restores to adults the wonder of childhood."
