Run The Beast Down

"...a dazzling symphony of shifting colours [and] flashing strobes..."
Fergus Morgan, The Stage

Odd Shaped Balls

"...with one actor and with a static set (albeit a delicately crafted throwback by Luke W. Robson to both the community sports club locker room and the 1950s wooden panelled, heavy-carpeted English pub). Throw in some snappy lighting cues by designer Robbie Butler and the stage is set for an exposing and well-rounded production..."
Daniel Perks, Exeunt Magazine 06/06/2016
"...It’s an intelligently designed production and the sharp lighting cues help to define the shifts in place and time..."
Annabel Mellor, West End WIlma 03/06/2016
