""The Forest treats its audience with respect and intelligence, recognising that small doesn’t have to mean small-minded or obvious. The show is like a beautiful object that is constantly assembled and reassembled by its playful cast." "
""Exquisite…It’s like a dream of a night in a forest. There’s a grace to this show that captivated and moved me." "
""A beguiling show that draws on small children’s capacity to play." "
