Friday 18th December 2015

Hare & Tortoise has won first place in the reviews race and makes a great day out with the children now they’re off school. Here are some handy links to all the reviews for your reading pleasure…

“Even if you consider yourself a tortoise, this IS worth racing to see.”

Nottingham Post says “this is the perfect show for introducing young children to an exciting theatrical world….it’s brilliant.”

“Which bit did you like the best?” “All of it.” ★★★★★

MumsNet Nottingham comments that Hare & Tortoise is “a tale of enthusiasm, experience, enjoyment and friendship, beautifully told and full of details that connect with its audience, their parents and grandparents.” The 3 year old critic brought her Mum along, and will be coming again!

“Hare & Tortoise is a complete and unbiased winner of a show!” ★★★★

East Midlands Theatre critic Phil Lowe writes that this is “a very visual show full of innocent comedy, music and songs and occasional moments of reflection – totally perfect for the four to eight year old children that are its audience.”

“This play is perfect for this time of year”

The Mummy Diary gives a lovely review – “we’ve been to several plays now with the children, including some larger ones but I have to say that this was without a doubt my favourite, the huge smiles on the children’s faces when it finished were a credit to both Elizabeth and Adam’s acting.”

Hare & Tortoise runs at Nottingham Playhouse until Saturday 2 January.
