British Theatre Guide
"... Miriam Nabarro's design deserves special praise. The stage furniture is made up from ingeniously employed '40s style suitcases and the drama unfolds in between some wooden gates on one side and a wooden tower structure - filled with suitcases when not in use - on the other. The audience faces this from two sides giving a taste of the in the round experience so familiar to patrons of the main Royal Exchange module...[more] clever stagecraft is in Dr Korczak's occasional challenges to an unseen German soldier represented by a suspended uniform and a lighting effect. This brilliantly shows how he tried to treat his oppressors with a respect and humanity that they denied to him."

"...Exiting, I saw people holding back their tears, and some who could not. "
**** The Guardian Alfred Hickling
"...Korczak's legacy remains enshrined in international law as the basis for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, whose stipulations include the right to play, the right to an education and the right to protest. He did not specify the right to challenging, inventive and intelligent theatre, but this admirable production adds it to the list."
