Press quotes

The use of multimedia was clever and at times breathtakingly moving.
Sandra Bowden, Oz Baby Boomers 02/05/2012
The back wall is festooned with pots and pans and the effect is magical when they reflect projected images (Martin Langthorne).
Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise 08/05/2012
Martin Langthorne’s lighting also complemented the mood and ideas of this play, occasionally shining memories on the pots hanging from the wall as stories unfolded, creating striking imagery.
Shit on your play 13/05/2012
...supported in every detail by Anna Tregloan’s set and costume design, Martin Langthorne’s lighting and audio visual effects, and Ekrem Mülayim’s sound and music composition.
Frank McKone, Canberra Critics Circle 29/04/2012
It is the integration of sound by Ekrem Mulayim, beautifully composed and placed; the set and costume design, Anna Tregloan and most especially, the lighting by Martin Langthorne that complements the endeavors of the other artists astonishingly well.
Kevin Jackson, Kevin Jackson's Theatre Diary 15/05/2012
Functional, cleverly manipulated – and interacted with – by Martin Langthorne’s lighting and video designs, it allowed the three actors to pull necessary props and costume changes from the pots clustered around the set and provided a sense of movement and an almost-tangible frustration, especially... continue reading
The Spell of Waking Hours 03/06/2012
The lighting, by Martin Langthorne, and sound, by Ekrem Mulayim, were minimal but effective. Spotlights took the focus of the play away from the kitchen and into the memories of the two sisters.
Libby Elliot, Libby in London 08/01/2013
The lighting design by Martin Langthorne turned the set by Anna Tregloan, an art wall installation of ordinary catering-sized pots and pans, into a memorising and glorious sight.
Kellie Rogers, Australian Stage 19/04/2013
Sound Designer and Composer Ekrem Mulayim and Lighting and Audio Visual Designer Martin Langthorne complement and add to the interior and exterior landscape of the characters’ worlds with their designs.
Kate Foy, Greenroom 20/04/2013
There were some very nice lighting moments (Martin Langthorne), with water like projections reflecting from the pots onto the actors face while they recalled certain events from their past. The lighting in addition to Ekrem Mulayim’s subtle sound design and original compositions added to create an... continue reading
Bobbi-Lea Dionysius, Aussie Theatre 26/04/2013
My not-so secret love of lighting was satisfied thrice over when projections of the past played over Nancy and Elma’s bodies from a projector hidden in a giant pot (Lighting Designer Martin Langthorne).
Meredith McClean, XS Entertainment 19/04/2013
It was elevated by Martin Langthorne’s lighting design – the close relationship between lighting and stage design made a great set even greater.
Rhiona, SOYP: The People's Theatre Advisor 07/07/2014
Martin Langthorne’s excellent atmospheric lighting gives the pots a coppery glow and hearth-like warmth onto which are also projected shifting reflective patterns, that invite us back into uneasy memories.
Lynne Lancaster, Sydney Arts Guide 06/07/2014
...it boasts a terrific set, designed by Anna Tregloan; a galley kitchen with island bench is festooned with well-used pots, of differing sizes, which hang on the wall like so many gongs, or mirrors. These are lit, wonderfully, by Martin Langthorne; by turns, they imbue a coppery glow and hearth-... continue reading
Llyod Bradford Syke, Crikey 10/05/2012
Congratulations also to the production creative for: Anna Tregloan's impeccably designed set, Martin Langthorne's lighting and Ekrem Mulayim's electro-percussive soundtrack
Jeanti St Clair, ABC North Coast 16/07/2014
The drunken aftermath is celebrated in dance. Anna Tregloan's set, constructed mainly from stainless steel industrial kitchen equipment, is brilliantly used, especially when the pots and pans on the back wall are suddenly illuminated with projected images by Martin Langthorne.
John McCallum, The Australian 04/05/2012
Martin Langthorne’s lighting design complements the set very well and is especially striking when lighting changes cause the polished bases of the pots on the wall to change colour and create a different mood.
Len Power, Canberra Critics Circle 27/08/2014
Martin Langthorne's lighting and Ekrem Mulayim's score conspire to lend the piece the integrated feel of a film - which you can very easily imagine this story becoming.
Jason Blake, Sydney Morning Herald 30/04/2012
Martin Langthorne’s unobtrusive lighting complement the design and the action.
Michael Brindley, Stage Whispers 21/09/2014
