Reviewing the performance, John Barber wrote: “The audience sits around the stage, and the stage gets filled with characters – pilgrims carrying huge suitcases, a waiter offering vodka, focused soldiers ready for action, a ‘vamp-princess’, and next to me a girl obsessively licking teaspoons. Elsewhere, an elderly gentleman dances with a tuba which plays by itself. A refined woman, the Water Hen, is shot and put into a bath only to be resurrected by hot water”.
