Michael Morpurgo’s tale is brought to life in Samuel Adamson’s adaptation – but what have critics made of it? 

Financial Times: *** “Samuel Adamson’s adaptation is efficient, allowing space for atmospheric sequences of choric vocalise.”

Radio Times: ” As a stage production, Running Wild is beautifully realised and modulated.”

The Telegraph:**** “it softened up every cynical bone in my body and is, in short, a winner.”

Time Out: **** “It’s a crowdpleaser, mainly thanks to inspiring and energetic staging.”

WhatsOnStage: **** “After this show, you won’t look at your palm-oil guzzling shampoo, soap, pizzas or chips in the same way again.”

London Theatre 1:  **** “Ambitious but unshowy stuff from a company that does exteriors as few others can.”

The Upcoming: ***** “a unique and unforgettable theatre experience.”

Evening Standard: **** “What an audacious and imaginative start this is to the Open Air Theatre’s season.”

Culture Whisper: *** “this family Open Air show doesn’t have the narrative depth on stage to satisfy adult scrutiny. But it’s not short of wondrous spectacle or worthy intentions.”

West End Wilma:***** “The show is a visual and literary masterpiece in a perfectly chosen theatre.”

The Guardian: *** “It’s Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié’s lifesize animals who are the real draw in a piece that lacks a convincing emotional underpinning.”

Official London Theatre:  “An orangutan-tastic dark family adventure to launch the Open Air Theatre’s summer season.”

Theatre Bubble:*** ” The denouement of the story is touching and very well acted, but there are issues with the production.”

Running Wild runs at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre until the 12th June. To book tickets visit: Discount Theatre.com , Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk
