“Directed by John Sheedy on a quirkily designed set (Alicia Clements) with surprising lighting effects (Matthew Marshall), this is an extraordinary production that has the pace, action and fun of a Feydeau?
Carol Wimmer, StageWhispers.com.au
"The production’s design team of Alicia Clements (designer), Matthew Marshall (lighting designer), Neil Mclean (sound designer) and Alana Canceri (wardrobe coordinator) collaborated to make the best use of the space and to add to the comedic elements of the piece by guiding the audiences eye in a way that felt intuitive instead of forced. The set design by Alicia Clements was well thought out and makes economical use of the Ensemble Theatre’s performance space. The use of the picture frames and doors was so creative and gave the performers yet another tool to be used to great advantage. Lighting design by Matthew Marshall was yet another element that was perfectly complementary to the action.
