“A  fun, fast-paced and physically dynamic work that demonstrates clear use of expressive skills, pathos, Commedia, manipulation of production areas and the actor audience relationship while also being entertaining. A great example of how to move beyond reality of life as lived as a solo performer. The creative use of set and strong performance work were the highlight for me.”
(Nick Waxman, Eltham College)

“Jasper Foley, delightfully blends direct-to-audience narration with handheld puppets and the physical comedy and masked characters of the Italian Commedia dell’Arte.”
(Herald Sun)
