“One’s breath is certainly taken away by the set design by Sarah Beaton: an ominous black box, admonished by an inverted triangle of white light (lighting by Zoe Spurr) that glows eerily behind a central swing hung over a sunken geometric black pool set into the black rostrum of the raised stage. It looks magnificent and is a visual statement you will not forget in a hurry.” - British Theatre

“The centrepiece of  Sarah Beaton’s memorable set design, which reflects psychological undertones in the story, is an island surrounded by a moat in which both Michaels paddle tentatively. A garden swing hangs from above, as childhood memories intrude upon current dilemmas and the silent, isolated Michael reaches out and searches for his voice.” - The Reviews Hub

“Designer Sarah Beaton’s set is simple but a wonderful juxtaposition to the sticky web that entraps the characters. A swing hovers above a boxy platform containing a large island surrounded by water. All black and angular, the construction is a subtle metaphor” - The Play's The Thing
