|“Tireswing Theatre deserves much credit for looking beyond the well-worn stories of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm to bring a whimsical Irish folk tale to the stage.”
“Tami Zimmerman Henry, adaptor and director, draws some amusing parallels between life and prejudices in the fisherman’s hut on the rocky shore and in the palace of the deep.”
