‘The play offers a moving image of the desolation created by oppressive regimes. The two enforced vagabonds reminded me of the tragic itinerants in Athol Fugard’s Boesman and Lena…. It offers a potent reminder of the dangers of subordinating people to rigid political and economic systems.” – Guardian

“demonstrates the humour and love that can survive in the midst of the brutality that can grip those who are struggling to survive…. Children of Fate is a thought-provoking play.” –
