'One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard…. A timely intervention in the debate on human rights. Enthralling. Sublime. A secular hymn for humanity.*****’
Thos Ribbits - Musical talk

'I am not a human rights activist, I am a storyteller who feels lucky to have been handed this story to tell. However, it is striking how the subject of human rights is bathed in silence, the bleak silence of those whose material interests will be undermined by the freedom of others, and the uneasy shuffling silence of those who believe that keeping their heads down will prevent the worst of the savaging of our rights. History teaches that keeping quiet never works. So we are making a little gentle noise.'

'The English Cabaret’s cast of four works well together, sprinkling the show with magic and even a toffee from the Happy Prince himself. A delightful hour!'
