“Caird's rather Brechtian staging, set by John Napier on a bare, circular stage, with an eloquent, little orchestra and big, well-drilled chorus, goes with a swing. There are scant expensive, scenic thrills. Wooden cases become the main props and even serve as galloping horses. A trip through an American jungle is conveyed with green lights and sinister noises.”
