I loved this show and found it hilarious - also an imaginative and intelligent script. I'm small, and I can't believe people complained. Although funny, it gave a bit of an idea of what it must have been like under the Nazis - what with internment camps for small people, the book 'Little Women' being burned, short people having to hide with sympathisers (relatives) and being betrayed etc. I remember there was an 'undergroud' movement which was actually below a block of flats, where they would plan how they could survive. Another part was that everything was designed for taller people, making everyday life very difficult. Sounds about right! The whole thing was very thought-provoking. Wish I could see it again.
