Knock Knock

The design is impeccable. The stage is divided in two, a magical forest on one side, full of trees laced with fairy lights, the warmth of Harris’ living room on the other. Jacob Gowler’s lighting design is brilliant, transferring us between spaces with ease. It is used to particularly moving effect towards the end of the piece, when Harris waits interminably through the seasons.
Amelia Brown, The Spy in the Stalls 03/07/2018

Beauty & The Beast

Lighting (design by Jacob Gowler) was completely perfect in every way! A well-considered accessory to everything on stage but never…. ever obtrusive.
