Reviews of Arcola’s previous Family Shows:

Arcola Theatre has turned the classic story by Jules Verne into a funny and magnificent play for the whole family.
—Hackney Wow, on Around the World in 80 Days
 .
The slapstick action generates plenty of laughs as the trio take on a score of other roles, most hilariously an Indian princess.
—Hackney Gazette, on Around the World in 80 Day
 .
The production’s greatest success is that it feels like everyone is enjoying themselves – each member of the audience, and all the actors around them.
