I loved the book, but wasn't sure how it would translate on the boards. But it was truly amazing. Totally absorbed as was the whole audience. The best production I've seen

I had read the book but would not have booked tickets. My friend treated me and I wasn't that excited to go. I'm so glad she did because it was PHENOMENAL! It is an incredible, visual feast, a real sensory and emotional experience. We laughed and cried, left feeling uplifted and animated about what we'd seen and the thoughts it had provoked. I used to work for a theatre company so got lots of free tickets to shows, this is easily one of the best. The staging is like nothing you will have seen before, and inform the text. The performances are touching with not a bad one in the cast. It is such an exciting delight, don't let it pass you by. I can't wait to go again.

Such an amazing show I could see how devoted the cast was and how hard they had to work to pull off such an inspiring show. Watching the show has given me the motivation I need to try and get into the west end myself, I would love to thank all of the cast and crew for putting on the show.

I was really impressed by the way the set worked. I'd been intrigued how the book would be adapted for the stage but the simple graphic cube works really well. Especially liked the secret panels that were opened and the "tube" scene was very effective. Excellent performances. Rat and "Sandy " the dog included.

I came out of the show in absolute awe, it was the best show I have seen in a long while. the acting was exceptional, I work with adolescents with Aspergic Spectrum and it was a brilliant and true representation of how they deal with daily life. To add to this the sound and lighting were incredible and complimented the storyline. I cried and laughed all the way through and can definitly appreciate how much time and thought has gone into this production.

Might have enjoyed it had you kept to your rule to keep children under 13 out. It really is a play for adults.

Well I think it was too clever for me, but having said that, I may not have appreciated how good it was. I thought it was extremely well portrayed, I have not read the book, so that may have had an influence on my opinion. I so wish I could have appreciated it more
