    A quite clever adventure about two French books who suddenly find themselves in danger. Witty dialogue ready for actors who like to go big. Would make an excellent addition to any evening's collection of shorts.

    I had the honour of reading one of the characters in this play in an online reading and its fabulous. The wonderful world of books has never been so brilliantly portrayed and would love to see this live on a stage!
