Review:
A gorgeous piece... layered and lyrical... Cook's characters are beautifully drawn and brilliantly played... Pilgrims isn't just a protest about the way women get sidelined in stories - that men get to be heroes, and women, their prizes - it dares to suggest there's a reason for that. --whatsonstage.com

Deft and witty... An eloquent cry of protest about the marginalisation of women in legend and story as well as life. --Guardian
