“The sparkling re-telling of the familiar tale of breadcrumbs and wicked witches still retains an occasional chilling moment but provides great family entertainment with a few surprises and a fair helping of seasonal fun.” -North Wales Chronicle

“Kenny makes a fascinating parallel between the resources needed by a story’s characters and the story-telling imagination of the family members.” -Reviews Gate

“Playwright Mike Kenny has given the story a new twist without losing any of its essence; the parents begin by telling it to their ungrateful and complaining children; then the family become part of the story themselves.” -Sparkler
