Bec Secombe, “All Over Adelaide”

“The Elephant of My Heart is a delightful tale for children of a young girl’s visit by a menagerie of animals and the wisdom they unveil whilst she recovers from a serious illness…. Through a variety of clever props, puppets & audience participation this charming, natural storyteller weaves her autobiographical narrative around a structure that makes the classic, ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ pale in comparison…Jessica’s innate ability to transport the audience into the steaming tropical jungle of her psyche, & portray the fantastical creatures she meets along the way, leaves the audience starry eyed and enraptured by her theatrics.Of particular note was her capacity to remain unperturbed when little enthusiasts joined her on stage to participate in the actions.”
