A superb visual spectacle and outstanding festival of sound worked collaboratively to create an unforgettable experience for both participants and audience. The on-stage performances were bursting with energy as the actors used the choric style of the piece to share the story-telling and move seamlessly between speech, song and dance. Zoe Humphries’s choreography effectively captured the disco style of the 1970s whilst also appearing unmistakably modern. The design of the set, a Manston-type refugee centre, gave the Marlborough revival of this show significant contemporary relevance.
