“Fabrice Serafino’s superb set design is pure magic that juxtaposes life under the floorboards” The British theatre guide

“The undoubted star of this show however is the staging itself. In an inspiring collaboration of witty direction (by Patrick Sandford) and imaginative settings (by designer Fabrice Serafino) the two worlds - of the tiny borrowers and the giant humans - leap magically from the pages of Norton’s books onto the stage.”What’s On Stage

“This show is brilliantly staged with a marvellous and very inventive set” The Stage


With an ingenious lifting set that reveals life under the floorboards, some lightning quick changes and brilliant props, there is always something exciting to look at and the attention to detail is superb.” Salisbury Journal

Fabrice Serafino's colourful designs allow rapid changes between the upper and lower worlds, with perspective neatly captured.”This is Dorset
