We’re Staying Right Here

“The lighting design by George Bach is very effective especially in the transitions from one reality to another and in creating a sense of the world outside and above the flat”
Nick Wayne, Pocket Size Theatre 07/03/2019
“Devas artfully intertwines typical war language into the script, using our knowledge of past wars and of men’s struggles to shine, with the help of George Bach’s impressive lighting, a well needed spotlight onto the issue of mental health.”
Maddie Stephenson, The Spy in the Stalls 01/03/2019
