"The sound, composed by Philip Miller, is innocent yet nostalgic, as it crescendos and tapers, as a train travelling through the landscape will do.The characters are honed empathetically; ultimately, they are, as is Strike's wont, innocent in their sense of self revealing their values and their flaws with an endearing naiveté.

Because so little is said, it is about misunderstanding as opposed to understanding. Sadness and humor vie for dominance in its performance."
"I would strongly advise anyone who possesses a sense of wonder, and who believes in the magic of everyday situations and chance encounters to see this show.

"In typical Strike fashion, there's a fragile balance as she beckons to the audience to enter this peculiar world. é is like a fine poem that might just drift off and disappear into the night if you don't jump on.
