The production itself is extremely well considered - designer Fi Russell has done an excellent and thoughtful job.
Exuent Magazine by David Ralf 6/4/15
Fi Russell's design for both plays grounds us in the patient-friendly end of front-line health service, and the attention to detail - getting the beds just right pays off. The doctors office is one of ten. The hospital is one of a hundred.
The Public Reviews by Tom Finch 21/12/13
'Fi Russell's set is simple and makes wonderful use of the Gatehouse space.'
British Theatre Guide by Howard Loxton 14/12/13
'Plews goes full tilt for comedy and scores... you are carried on a wave of great songs and laughter...Even Fi Russell's costume designs are funny and Plews makes the rapid and cleverly choreographed scene changes almost a running joke in their slick execution by the cast.'
The Telegraph by Laura Thompson 18/6/13
'Otherwise, the staging is plain, with Fi Russell’s delicious costumes forming a set of their own and giving a painterly aspect to the scandal-mongering scenes in Lady Sneerwell’s drawing-room. As the Lady, Belinda Lang has the extreme elegance of a Reynolds, and plays the role with a restrained, dark glint worthy of Les Liaisons Dangereuses.'
Fourth Wall Magazine by Ewan Stewart 18/6/13
'Fi Russell’s costume design is a delight, with each character decked in their finery, the stage is dressed for success.'
One Stop Arts by Joe Crystal 17/6/13
'The language is as rich and colourful as the costumes - Fi Russell has adorned each of the players with authentic stunningly crafted and kaleidoscopic period apparel'
