Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
When Ant loses track of his very distracted father at the mall, he has to make his own way home. Soon he finds himself on a wild journey where he has to make his way through a field, and travel over a big body of water in a raft where he meets peculiar creatures like unstuffed dog toys (!). He finds mothers with babies and even a mysterious crone.
Winnipegger Johnathan Bevan, creator/performer of Ant!, uses a few special props and a row of chalkboards to help tell his tale. He has a gentle, welcoming presence which young children will find especially comforting as Ant makes his way through his strange world. One thing’s for sure: they might find the ending to be a bit of a surprise.
— Wendy Burke
