The performing poets are introduced cabaret-style in this characterful and quirky three-part show. Though each act is unique, there is constant theme of childlike memories subverted in the cruel surrealist style of Hilaire Belloc or Roald Dahl, seemingly melancholic musings are concluded concisely and unexpectedly with a darkly comic and fantastical twist. The lyrical passion is clear in the lilting rhythmic chains of carefully selected words, which build to a simple yet compelling narrative crescendo. The lighting, music and animated projections added power to an absorbing collection of weird and wonderful rhymes. (Kitty Hudson)
