Cinderella and the Beanstalk

Ali Hunter’s lighting design blew me away and inspired me to change my perception of the limitation within black box spaces.
Hanna Storey, Pocket Size Theatre

Clear White Light

Neil Warmington’s set design is flexible and oppressive, its effectiveness aided in no small measure by Ali Hunter’s very atmospheric (and occasionally startling) lighting
Peter Lathan, British Theatre Guide


The set, designed by Anna Reid, is the simple box frame of a small room, much smaller than the stage, which is in shadow all around it, and, coupled with Ali Hunter’s sensitive (that word again!) lighting, it creates an oppressive, claustrophobic atmosphere, aided by the almost subliminal sound design by Open Clasp regular Roma Yagnik.
