★★★★

"Lee Newby’s stark design aims for cold neutrality, an expanse of grey slabs laid out on a metallic grid, dotted with featureless props, and dominated by a narrow upper landing that stretches overhead like a catwalk. It’s certainly striking."

The stage

★★★

"Matthew’s fate is cleverly foregrounded in the visual symbolism of Lee Newby’s monochrome grey set, which has a Lego-like quality, quickly rearranged from a bedroom to a kitchen to Matthew’s bedroom. It looks like a home while recalling the grey concrete of a prison."
