Reviews of Life is a Dream

New Zealand Herald:  "Michael Hurst has assembled a superb cast who rise to that challenge in a flamboyant display of theatricality."

Coup de Main:  "Loot . . . presents everything that was good about the saucy, un-politically correct days gone past.  And the results are definitely sometimes shocking, sometimes perplexing, but at all times belly-slappingly funny".

Listener: "the actors . . . relish the opportunity for extravagantly absurd characterisation. . . . wickedly funny and appealing".
