A really heartwarming show. It’s intended primarily for children but we went along as adults and had a good fun time!

The story is delightfully well written with highs, lows, and lots of laughter. The two actors are engaging and played to the audience perfectly. A truly lovely show.

We had such a good time at this show, even without children. It is a heart warming story, really well-performed and the audience partcipation is great fun. Its not often that adults get to play and we loved it.

A fortuitous Fringe find. These guys are great. It was both hilarious and heart-warming. Just the silliness we needed that day. My kids (12 and 8) loved it, as did I - 44 :)

So much fun! A heartwarming story that the whole family can enjoy, complete with lots of laughs and the kids loved it. If you’re at the Fringe, this show is great for anyone aged 4 up to 104!

Well done to everyone involved - a 2022 highlight.
