"The whole show takes place on a kitchen dresser. In Bolton Octagon's case, a magnificent affair, 20ft high and filling the whole of one side of the theatre with an array of giant cannisters, plates, tea pot, and a superb cuckoo-clock. All this and the excellent costumes are designed by Peter Fairchild, and as a magical, scenic eye-full it could hardly be bettered." - Alan Hulme, Manchester Evening News.
