“Oh, Slingsby, you’ve done it again!”
David Grybowski, The Barefoot Review
"Beyond the immaculate work of each and every performer, everything from the music, to the props, to the artwork was, in and of itself, a work of immense beauty. A reworked version of the original script by Oscar Wilde, the new story is intricate, raw and magical. Enhanced by miniature puppets and shadow play, this is a performance whose stories will linger in your mind long after the final bow...A beautiful experience for all ages, ‘The Young King’ offers twists and turns to a raw and beautiful end."
Sarah Jean, trev.org.au
