“Farce & melodrama linking sing-a-longs of 50’s & 60’s hits -no more profound than ‘Dad & Dave’ -great fun”- Gerald Mayhead, Herald 31/2/72
“MUST did not aim to extend themselves intellectually with this play. The repertoire includes a play suitable for adults written by David Williamson (“The Coming of Stork”, The Removalist”, etc) in conjunction with group workshops, a children’s play by John Romeril of the Australian Performing Group, and a series of street/beach plays worked up by MUST.” -George Whaley (Dir. of Uni. Theatre), Farrago 10/3/72
