Moon On A Rainbow Shawl

What the popular press had to say...

"Even if it takes its time, Michael Buffong's admirably restrained production treats the characters as real people rather than outrageous exotics. ."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Errol John's play, first staged in 1958, is not well-known. But in Michael Buffong's sensitive revival it comes across as an intriguing mix of kitchen sink drama and tragicomedy — poignant, yet dense with slang and warm humanity."
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"This is an expertly orchestrated mixture of sadness and riotous fun."
Heather Neill for The Stage

"The work - pioneering in its time and due a revival - proves less moving than I had hoped."
Julie Carpenter for The Daily Express
