Press Quotes

Simon Wilkinson’s tantalising autumnal lighting, all stark moonlight and damp shadows

Christine Irvine, Exeunt Magazine

Simon Wilkinson’s warm, shadowy lighting [ ... ] effects a sense of the uncanny that pervades the entire production

Allan Radcliffe, The Times

Simon Wilkinson’s lighting in the form of a sinister 40-watt hue that shifts beatifically to Caravaggio-like tableaux is simply superb.

Irene Brown, Edinburgh Guide

Simon Wilkinson's lighting allows the whole to slip between realism and symbolism

Thom Dibdin, The Stage

ably supported by Simon Wilkinson’s emotive shadow-friendly lighting

Paul F Cockburn, Broadway Baby

a suitably eerie atmosphere brilliantly conjured up by subtle changes in Simon Wilkinson’s chiaroscuro lighting, reminiscent of film noir

Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre
