The Evening Standard

Hunting the Shark was the title selected, but after a lively opening burst in a Moby Dick/ Treasure Island fashion, the good ship de Salvo got caught in some terrible doldrums from which it never managed to emerge.

We did our bit by suggesting a title – The Rabbit Murders – and the actors responded with an off-the-cuff piece of storytelling. On some evenings I'm sure it just pours out, but on Saturday the storytelling was so constipated you could see the performers sweat as they tried to squeeze it out.

The Independent

A bit of relief came from the excellent extemporising five-piece band The Adventurists, whose percussive tapping, singing and strumming was an amusing backdrop. You could see them trying to force the main players into song during the low ebbs.
