REVIEWS & RECOMMENDATIONS
“A wonderfully observed piece from John Mabey - as insects plan their bid for freedom their views of the human race are pertinent and telling. Is this an allegory for the life of man on Planet Earth? Witty, fun and smart writing makes this a play of hidden depths.”
(Paul Smith)
