"Simple yet striking"
★★★★★ THE SAINT
"Through their stories, we witness the ingenuity and boundless originality of HookHitch Theatre... Puppetry choreographs its way into their work... Suitcases, sheets and boxes are playfully turned into thrones, ships and carts, launching everyone into a frenzy of childish amazement... It would come as no surprise if these innovative artists were a big part of theatre’s future"
★★★★ A YOUNGER THEATRE
"HookHitch’s production flows together effortlessly. The inclusion of music is seamless and the puppets are wonderful. This Was the World and I Was King is a remarkable piece of theatre, wonderfully evocative and beautifully produced"
