"Crucial to the impact of Ella Marchment’s production... is Ben Pickersgill’s lighting. Gaslights gutter and chiaroscuro effects heighten the overt theatricality – and shock value – of the ghostly comings and goings."     

Yehuda Shapiro - The Stage

"...the dark, claustrophobic nature of the space.. emphasised by Ben Pickersgill's dramatic lighting, all darkness and light, full of hidden corners and wonderfully theatrical."
