"A vivid and tumbling dramatic presence... real riches and depths are to be found, as it highlights the coarsening and toughening effects of life in wartime, balanced against an emotive love story."Evening Standard
"A magical, moving immersion in Louis de Bernières' exquisite story that so many of us know and love."A Younger Theatre
"Manages to both stay faithful to the original and inject it with freshness... much of the emotional drama comes from spectacle, song, movement and music and while this means that the weighty, winding narrative of the book is simplified, it feels more streamlined."The Guardian
"A fleet, muscular retelling. Liable to bring a lump to the throat."Daily Telegraph
