  Disco Pigs  / By Enda Walsh / Young Vic / September 2011  Direction:  Cathal Cleary   Lighting:   Anna Watson   Sound:     Tom Gibbon     PRESS  Chloe Lamford's ragtag set is a triumph, a 1990s hotchpotch of detritus, old sheets and net curtains that is an exciting backdrop to Cleary's creative directorial decisions.  ★★★★ THE INDEPENDENT  Chloe Lamford’s design creates a chaotic fantasy world, in which the two seem half trapped in childhood, eating plastic play food and fighting shop dummies.  ★★★★ THE FINANCIAL TIMES  Quite rightly, Cleary treats it as the period piece it is, but he and designer Chloe Lamford also look forward to later Walsh plays with a set suggesting a stage within a stage on which Runt and Pig are condemned, like two ham actors, to act out the same script.  ★★★★ THE GUARDIAN  Cleary marshalls their passions well, and with the sound designer Tom Gibbons and the lighting designer Anna Watson makes something evocative of Chloe Lamford’s beautifully cluttered set.

  Circle Mirror Transformation  / By Annie Baker / Royal Court / July 2013  Direction: James Macdonald  Lighting:  Peter Mumford  Sound:    Carolyn Downing  PRESS  We may not be American. We may never have ended up on the wooden-floor of a hall in some out-of-the-way place like this, reaching after some ill-defined moment of personal transformation, but one way or another, yes, we’ve all been here.     ★★★★ THE TELEGRAPH   a disarming surprise    ★★★★ THE INDEPENDENT   James Macdonald’s pleasing production   ★★★★ THE EVENING STANDARD   The silences are heartbreaking. The waiting is agonising. The blackouts are hysterical. How often can you say that? ★★★★★ EXEUNT   
  The History Boys  / By Alan Bennett /Sheffield Crucible Theatre / May 2013  Direction:  Michael Longhurst   Lighting:   Neil Austin   Sound:    Max and Ben Ringham  Choreography: Imogen Knight  PRESS  ... when the boys perform choreographed scene changes to loud Eighties pop pastiches on a thrust stage marked out by sports-court white lines, Chloe Lamford’s sprawling design comes into its own.  ★★★★ THE TIMES  he fading lines of a badminton court on the polished hardwood parquet immediately evoked the dreary, empty routines of grammar school life.  ★★★★ THE INDEPENDENT  ★★★★ THE GUARDIAN
