' - a moving, thought provoking play which sends you home questioning. Moon Tiger is a worthy addition to theatre history.' Gloucestershire Echo 'An excellent adaptation that offers an evocative portrayal of one woman's life remembrances. Some fascinating reflections on the history of the 20th century.' Four Stars - Everything Theatre ' - Reade's adaptation is undoubtedly faithful to the book...' Daily Express 'What hits one within minutes of the play opening is the beauty of the language, the clever use of words that make for gentle humour and how often the play nudges us in the direction of remembering our own history.' The Bath Chronicle
