Lyn Gardner has reviewed the Birmingham Stage Company’s production of The Firework-Maker’s Daughter in The Guardian. Gardner praises the set design and other aspects of the production, but has some reservations about the acting itself, describing the river pirates as ‘a little too broad, nudging the story into pantomime’, and the acting of the adults playing children as ‘over-emphatic’. Ultimately, however, she feels that the play is a good adaptation of Pullman’s novel, and that children will enjoy it. The Firework-Maker’s Daughter will show at the Birmingham Old Rep Theatre until 28th January. To book tickets, go to the Old Rep website.
