“Kudos must go to director Ross Balbuziente and designers Josh McIntosh, Jason Glenwright and Guy Webster for a phenomenal use of stage, light and sound to create a fluid production that was always moving – quite literally, as the stage was a wooden wheel with trapdoors and panels that allowed for a multitude of clever special effects. Shadow puppetry, clever curtaining, great music and dozens of props and costume pieces gave it dynamism and pace.”
Sydney Morning Herald
