"Mathias and lighting designer Jamie Platt drench these moments in a violent colour wash, pointing up Rufus’s rosy illusions.”

Sam Marlowe - The Times - 19/02/2019

"What also helps to set the atmosphere of the play, is the lighting which helps us recognise the time and place, separating

Beau’s heart touching monologues from an otherwise bubbly and staccato flow of Gently Down the Stream.”

Amalia Felicijan - Theatre Weekly - 18/02/2019

"Sean Mathias direction is well paced; whilst Jamie Platt’s lighting and Lex Kosanke’s great soundtrack also help enhance the piece.”

Karen Pond - LondonTheatre1 - 19/02/2019

"There's a genuinely magical moment when Harry sings...a superb interpretation by Lawtey of "The Man I Love",

tellingly taking from storytelling Beau on the upper stage against the bare back wall so well lit by Jamie Platt."

David Nice - Arts Desk - 19/02/2019

“Jamie Platt’s lighting and Lex Kosanke’s sound design meld together, adding to the atmospheric background of the play.”

Katre - TheSpyInTheStalls - 19/02/2019

“Leo Newby’s composite set is... supported by sound and music (Lex Kosanke) and lighting design

(Jamie Platt), which combine to provide subtle comment on the action.”
