"The staging, designed by Max Dorey and ingeniously lit by Rachel Smith, is superb. Narrow spotlights and liberal swirls of smoke and incense mean it’s hardly ever possible to tell how big the stage really is, a shifting uncertainty that adds to the unease of the play’s atmosphere..."
THE PUBLIC REVIEWS
“Max Dorey’s Minimalist set allows full play to Ricky Dukes’ well-choreographed direction...Rachel Smith’s Directional Lighting add an Otherworldly Sense of Menace.”
"Max Dorey's design beautifully emphasises the themes of the play - smoke machines belch throughout, so that the theatre is a peasouper in which faces and bodies are indistinguishable, forcing the audience into Tyresian blindness."
WHAT'S ON STAGE
"Max Dorey has produced a blitz-hit home, with chairs, wooden crates and tables adorning the walls. The dank claustrophobia shrouds the players in mystery and hits on themes of unclear identity...at other times, showers of poppies descend like blood, heralding both death and rebirth."
