"Rob Evans’s whimsical, tender tale of lonely prim’n’grim Carol (Ronnie Leer) who melts into seasonal goodwill when she has to help a lost Elf (Ben Lewis) find Santa before Christmas Day – he’ll die, otherwise.
Claire Halleran’s rooftop set has all the intricate surprise of a life-size pop-out book. Leer and Lewis (who only speaks a gobbledygook Elvish) deliver side-splittingly daft antics, especially as they clamber high and low – but as their adventure draws to a close, they unaffectedly convey the complex emotions that even young children recognise from their own friendships. Elf safe, Carol – like Scrooge – transformed ... audiences transported. Ho! ho! ho! Happy endings all round!" The Herald, 14th December 2009
