Star rating: four stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
"This new musical by Christopher J Orton (music and lyrics) and Robert Gould (book and lyrics), based on a true story, is well-worth a visit. From the powerful opening number, ‘Burning’, this production captures the audience and takes it on an emotional journey of hardship, injustice, conflict, heartbreak and moral dilemmas."
"The 18-strong cast is impressive with powerful voices. It is encouraging to see that several of them are making their professional debuts in this production, no doubt names to look out for in the future."
"The staging of this show is a credit to director Brendan Matthew. The set, designed by Joana Dias, is wonderfully effective and Charlotte Tooth deserves an award for her choreography – to create what she does with so many actors in such a confined space is nothing short of brilliant. An excellent six-piece band is led by musical director Aaron Clingham."
