Press Quotes

Simon Wilkinson’s lighting helps emphasise this fluctuating persona, lighting the grey-greens of Jean Chan’s set as if it was a landscape, moving between sun and shade

Thom Dibdin, The Stage

Lighting is also highly considered, and the production team beautifully capture the contrast in the light of the sun throughout the day and into the night.

The Public Reviews

... carefully and cleverly suggests both encroaching decay and a gathering sense of doom as Hedda's actions finally close in on her

Simon Thompson, WhatsOnStage

Claire McKenzie’s eerie sound design and Simon Wilkinson’s lighting both help to create an oppressive, ominous mood, as they do throughout

Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre
