Artistic Director David Berthold wrote:

Out Damn Snot, our co-production with long-term friends shake & stir theatre co., spoke with the past in another way – by lightly drawing on Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream to give us a slime-fuelled fantasy that delighted children and their older companions. La Boite has built a very considerable family audience over the last few years, with January crowds often rivalling our bigger shows later in the year. Out Damn Snot didn’t meet our box office targets – it didn’t have the advantage of being a theatricalisation of a famous children’s book, as many such shows are – but it certainly got everyone squealing.

The critics said:

...an evening of unbridled fun, clever writing, grossness and slime that you would have to be seriously lacking in the pulse department not to get a giggle out of ... A quick glance around the audience on opening night showed there were just as many adults slapping their thighs as there were children squealing with laughter. - The Courier-Mail

...energetic, snotty and full of fantastical charactersand fun for all ages. - Australian Stage Online
