By Mike Kenny
‘…the fluidity of narration, combined with the simplicity of the settings allows the story to flow seamlessly…The Barnstorm ensemble, both in acting and production, has a consistency and continuity that contributes greatly to a house-style that is lucid and engaging, not only for the target audience, in this case 4-5 year-olds – but also the adults who accompany them’. Irish Theatre Magazine
