"One of the Polka’s assets is a quiet garden out the back of the Adventure theatre...The show’s design cleverly plays upon this. The audience sits in what amounts to an indoor garden with a green carpet, a wooden bench, plant pots and watering cans. There are branches with ivy-like fairy lights wrapped around them and a spider’s web that will in one scene, quite magically, become musical. The stage itself is all white bricks and white floorboards, ensuring a pleasing clackety-clack sound as Mia’s pushalong duck is taken for a walk."
