I loved the play and the fact that it was for children too. I could hear them laugh and they were enjoying it. The animal movements were brilliant, I especially liked it when after bowing they all did what seemed to be a wolf movement with the hand. The costumes were good, but the masks were absolutely brilliant because as the actors looked down they showed us the faces of the animals. You were really looking at the face of real animal. The stage, though small, was very nicely used. Every single actor did an amazing job, My favorite animal was mother wolf! The relationship between her "children" was sweet. The bear was very funny, and the tiger had a dominating presence. And the main character just fitted the bill like the book. I can write on and on about every single character, the truth is that they were all very good. I recommend i.


Loved it! We all came away with a different favourite character Great movement - felt like we were really among the animals
