‘Mention must be made to the visual creatives involved in this production, Marg Horwells set design was plush and on the verge of creepy and secluded which was well-fitting for the piece. Matthew Marshall’s lighting design was smooth, photogenic and exposing.’

“There’s some welcome softness, too, in Matthew Marshall’s lighting and in a score (composed by Rachael Dease) that subtly enhances the tension in the room”

Jason Blake, Sydney Morning Herald

“Dressed flatly by Marg Howell and lit mercilessly by Matthew Marshall”

Martin Portus, ArtsHub

“Lighting designer Matthew Marshall’s pink projections of the word "happiness" onto the white blinds accompanied by Rachael Dease’s eery, deliberately infantile compositions go beyond kitsch into a creepy surface world”

Jessica Keath, The Guardian

“The staging is enhanced by beautiful ambient lighting designed by Matthew Marshall that creates a feeling of audience participation at times; the house lights stay up for a good long while at the top of the show and fade in and out throughout. In a way, we feel like we're a live studio audience at a talk show where these two poor souls are revealing their dark secrets for our entertainment. Something really gorgeous happens when the shag carpet (implemented by designer Marg Horwell) is lit just so; it turns into some kind of sparkling moon-lit terrain and fits the dream sequence just perfectly.”

Cicely Binford, Perth Culture

“If you’ve ever been the Griffin’s Stables theatre, you’ll know there’s nowhere to hide on that tiny diamond stage – for performers, or for the audience. In Greene’s play – as in Lee Lewis’ direction and Matthew Marshall’s lighting, this intimacy and all-seeingness is amplified; the house-lights stay up for most of the seventy-minutes’ running time, and are carefully calibrated to subliminally draw us into moments of unexpected honesty.”
