The teachers of P5, P6 and P7 were very impressed with the performance. The actor was extremely skilled and engaging. The children could not take their eyes off him! It generated lots of interesting discussion back in the classroom. We would wholeheatedly recommend this performance to other schools.Alyson Wier, Head Teacher, Tweedbank Primary
Three mums and our three sons saw this show today at the Sydney Opera House and we all loved it - thought it was brilliant. We went into the show on a cloudy rainy day and emerged into bright sunshine - literally and figuratively. Thank you for laughter, joy and some tears, insight, poetry and passion. We didn't even really mind having to sit on the floor... :-)Cathy Robinson

Brilliant – I was totally engrossed. Great storytelling and acting. Loved the different layout – kids hadn’t experiences anything like that. Thanks.Scottish Schools Tour 2012
