Disco Pigs / By Enda Walsh / Young Vic / September 2011
Direction: Cathal Cleary
Lighting: Anna Watson
Sound: Tom Gibbons
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.
