Each of the stories is told with constant inventiveness and charm by the cast... More richly entertaining, resonant and heartening than many a grown-up show.★★★★

A lively and entertaining re-telling of Oscar Wilde's fairy tales★★★★★

The List

A perfect Christmas treat... Children’s show or not, this is one of the most charming hours I have spent in a theatre all year.★★★★

Exceptionally innovative... This is how you share fairy tales. Few else at the Fringe engages a young (and old) audience in the same manner Wilde Creatures manages.★★★★

The Wee Review

Excellent production - very engaging and fun for the young ones, while also being thought-provoking for the adults.★★★★★

Natasha, audience member

The Wilde Creatures are a raggle-taggle band of storytelling actor-musicians who bring the characters to vivid life... This thoughtful show, enlivened by jaunty music and lyrics, has a brain as well as a heart.

The Guardian

What a wonderful show, filled with music, energy, story-telling and gentle audience inclusion... Kept the audience entertained and connected throughout...★★★★★

Tall Stories succeed in doing what it does best – bringing shows to young audiences, and sowing the seeds for a lifelong love of theatre.

What's On Stage

The score is full of numbers you can’t help bobbing along to in your seat, and the versatile set of piled up wooden pallets boasts plenty of fun surprises. 

The Stage

Wilde Creatures makes for a delightful Christmas outing, and Tall Stories succeed once again in reaching out to younger audiences with a big-hearted show.

Broadway World

With no prior knowledge of the play I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed myself immensely. The comedy, music and darker questions made Wilde Creatures a performance for all ages and Tall Stories succeeded in bringing a show full of lifelong lessons to young and old alike. I couldn’t have asked for a more entertaining way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
