Treasure Island

The set design, created by Jon Harris, is aesthetically pleasing with levels and adaptation to the scene throughout with Christopher Flux's lighting complementing the physical elements.

My Dogs Got No Nose

The second half opens with him coming back to his dressing room, still buzzing, on a high after his performance - and then he picks up where he left off reminiscing. Slowly the mood changes – something achieved with the aid of terrific stage lighting - and becomes much darker as the full tragic story is laid bare.
