“While there are a few rough edges to be ironed out in the dialogue, what certainly does come across already is a set of warm-hearted, interconnected stories told with a great deal of humour… It’s great to see a writer imagining something on such a large scale in these straitened times. I will be watching with interest what happens next with this entertaining piece of theatre and hope to see its next incarnation, whatever form it may take.”
