The play has charmed audiences worldwide, and received countless five-star reviews:
“Ingenious and beguiling…this underwater micro-epic has as big a heart as its unlikely hero, and offers a whale of a time in a miniature format.” ~The Guardian
…an endearing Australian show … akin to a theatrical Wall-E, ~New York Times
