When words fail us, we go back to the alphabet for superlatives…and words truly do fail me in describing this astonishing production. So:-
A -Astonishing, I’ve already used. Awesome, yes indeed, plus arousing, artistic, awesome…how much time do you have?
B ..Beautifully staged and brilliantly realised on all levels. Brave and bonzer also come to mind.
C is Caroline :- charismatic, candescent, comedic, confronting, classy, consummate, cutting edge…..
