Pita’s adaptation of Mick Jackson’s splendidly lugubrious children’s book mixes mime, acting, song and dance to pleasingly twisted effect. When the elements come together, these variously surreal, twisted and of course sorry tales swell with unstated, perhaps even unspeakable meanings. "
Arthur Pita’s talent for macabre mischief serves him well in this new production. The show’s mix of dark, camp and zany carries us through. The result is clever. "
