Disco Pigs

The hallucinatory, Joycean night-town through which Pig and Runt roam is effectively conjured by Giles Thomas’s dense sensory soundscape, with lighting to match by Elliot Griggs.
Ben Brantley, New York Times 10/01/2018
Everything—really, everything—is perfectly realized in this production... a mostly bare stage, which, lit ingeniously by Elliot Griggs, can be a home, a nightclub, and—most bewitchingly—a magical trip on the seaside.
Tim Teeman, The Daily Beast 09/01/2018

An Octoroon

Elliot Griggs' virtuosic lighting
Fergus Morgan, The Stage 25/05/2017

Lampedusa

The recipe is simple: two lyrical monologues, two strong performances and Elliot Griggs’ atmospheric lighting. Shattering.
Kate Maltby, The Times 15/04/2015

Yen

Elliot Griggs’ lighting is phenomenal, and almost a character within itself.
Tracey-Ann Thompson, The Good Review 19/02/2015

Pomona

The very air threatens menace as you enter the normally cosy theatre in the round, aided by Giles Thomas’ eerie, jarring soundscape, and Elliot Griggs’ equally disconcerting lighting design, involving frenziedly flashing fluorescent tubes.
Nick Smurthwaite, The Stage
a lushly plotted, intricate piece of rings and roundabouts, unexpected turns and half-real conclusions, brought to life by lighting designer Elliot Griggs
Miriam Zendle, What's On Stage

Fleabag

With the first scene begins our first example of the subtle but effective lighting design, by Elliot Griggs. Lighting changes accompany changes in scene and mood in such a way that supports the action, but does not detract from it.
Simon Holton, A Younger Theatre 09/09/2013

The Boy Who Kicked Pigs

The ensemble of four... supported as they are by truly impressive production design
Joshua Elliot, Ed Fest Mag 15/08/2013
The design of the show is remarkable, a symphony in grey... visually stunning stuff.
Laura Mooney, A Younger Theatre 09/08/2013

Somersaults

...the somersaults of the title, which David Carlyle executes in perilously tight spaces, while Elliot Griggs’ lighting shifts the mood, and walls in Philip Lindley’s set open as a liquidator takes bankrupt stock of James and his goods.
Timothy Ramsden, Reviews Gate 07/01/2013
Phillip Lindley’s set design, alongside the lighting of Elliot Griggs is remarkable.
Kirstie Ralph, What's Peen Seen 06/01/2013
Philip Lindley's set, coupled with lighting by Elliot Griggs, is ingenious. Bookcases lining the back wall take on a life of their own as the play progresses, with lights focusing on relevant shelves.
Laura Silverman, The Arts Desk 05/01/2013

Joe / Boy

Elliot Griggs' cold, subtle lighting is effective and follows through the emphasis on the actor rather than any other theatrical distractions.
Ed Theakston, Fourth Wall Magazine 01/11/2012

Meat

The production values are extremely good, there’s a brilliant dual-purpose set, serving both the meat factory and the family kitchen, by James Cotterill and the slaughterhouse atmospherics from lighting and sound team Elliot Griggs and Edward Lewis are remarkably well delivered.
Johnny Fox, The Public Reviews 11/06/2012

The Custard Boys

The simplicity of Elliot Griggs’ lighting design was the key to its success in so effectively conjuring the appropriate atmospheres.
Ed Theakston, Fourth Wall Magazine 21/04/2012
The build-up to the climatic final scene is extremely provocative with the majesty of Elliot Griggs' lighting effect adding to the experience.
QX Magazine 18/04/2012
It is a simple set that employs innovative staging and excellent use of sound and light to recreate the warmth of the Norfolk fields or the fear of the air raid sirens, but most of all it allows us to concentrate on the excellent acting of the cast.
James Buxton, UK Theatre Net 14/04/2012

Perchance to Dream

Elliot Griggs’ lighting is beautiful and really transforms the space; indeed the designer has made the most of simple set, cleverly using mainly three pieces of furniture to hint at three very different times.
Madeline Gould, Fringe Review 05/11/2011

And I and Silence

...along with Elliot Griggs’s flawless lighting, sees the Finborough’s intimate playing space transformed from squalid hovel to bare prison cell and back again with just a couple of prop changes.
Jo Caird, Whatsonstage.com 13/05/2011

Elephant's Graveyard

...the most striking production in the [National Student Drama] festival...
Robert Hewison, The Sunday Times 12/04/2009
