The Turn of the Screw

"It would have been easy to overplay the gothic in this space, but designer Tom Piper and Lewis Hannaby’s lighting defy expectations — opening outdoors in a hazy, summery glow, and only gradually chilling things right down to candle stubs and shadows."
Alexandra Coghlan, The Spectator 28/01/2021
"The spectral flute and bass clarinet duet of Variation XI is especially eerie, illuminated by that single, naked bulb. Lewis Hannaby’s superb lighting shrouds events in nocturnal gloom, then suffuses the stage in sunlight."
Mark Pullinger, Backtrack 28/01/2021
