This production combines elements of opera, musical, concert and theatre with actors, choir and orchestra sharing the stage to create a unique ensemble performance.

"... another challenging piece... The four actors on the stage, along with Thumb contemporary music ensemble, narrate these letters and criticisms with a wit, grace and humour that often belies the true venom and desperation that lurks within the words written on the page."
