“Built to last... Loving revival... Strong new cast... Troughton [is] touching. ”

Kate Bassett (The Times)

“Unashamedly old-fashioned story, simply and quietly told... One of the very best multi-generational offerings this Christmas. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A family show with real emotional depth and staying power... Full of delightful humour and heart-warming touches. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Jackson’s sensitive direction brings out the best in everyone, with the wonderful Troughton exuding a gruff humanity... A gem. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Certainly moving... Fine actors. Troughton is just gorgeous... brilliantly blustery as sudden gusts of love catch him unawares. ”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“Tender, aching portrait of the effect of Britain's wartime efforts on children. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)
