The World of Extreme Happiness / By Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig / National Theatre Shed / September 2013
Direction: Michael Longhurst
Lighting: Philip Gladwell
Sound: Ben and Max Ringham
Chloe Lamford's design offers up neon rainbows and pink dolls who judder like puppets on a string.
The grime-meets-neon design is spot-on
★★★★THE SUNDAY TIMES
the design from Chloe Lamford is excellent
the rough and ready Shed aesthetic suits this project splendidly and Chloe Lamford’s simple but effective design of illuminated boxes of “Made in China” dolls begins to look more and more sinister.
★★★★THE EVENING STANDARD
Chloe Lamford’s design sees tarpaulin-covered shacks collide with gaudy neon rainbows, glowing with the tawdry false promise of an elusive pot of gold.
