Skin In Flames

Spanish playwright Guillem Clua’s artfully structured thriller intertwines two related stories that take place in the same shabby hotel room. Each narrative unfolds with clarity and purpose, mainly thanks to a careful staging from directors Silvia Ayguade and Franko Figueiredo and an equally thoughtful lighting design from Derek Carlyle. The international cast negotiates this complex structure well, with neither story pulling attention away from the other. Bea Segura is a commanding, strident presence as the disillusioned reporter with a hidden agenda, but the real victim of this conflict is embodied in Laya Marti’s tortured, tormented Ida.
Paul Vale, The Stage 15/05/2015

The Burial

In terms of appealing and reaching out to its local audience, The Burial is certainly triumphant. Finally credit must be given to set and costume designer Richard Andrzejewski, lighting designer Derek Carlyle, sound designer Dinah Mullen, and drummer Sola Bankole. The production, set in the round, has influences of African culture throughout, whether it be singing, chanting, drumming or colourful costumes, and all of these aspects only add to and strengthen this piece of theatre.
