REVIEWS of “ The Whistling Girl”
“Parker’s misanthropic verse is phrased in deliciously acidic terms and in disarming musical settings…”
“It’s easy to picture Mrs Parker viewing this show with both a hiked eyebrow and a wry smile”
**** Irish Times
“…clever....imaginative….inventive…. echoes of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil, flourishes of The Doors, a touch of Kraftwerk here, and Leonard Cohen there”.
