"Designer Katie Lias' Victorian theatre, complete

with red-ruched satin curtains, fits like a glove

back in the versatile cosiness of the Watermill.

The top-hatted fairies look entirely at home –

there's an elegance to the wild magic created by

fast-moving stage pictures, performers and

instruments working as one"

“The costumes are simply exquisite”

- Robin Strapp, Newbury Weekly News

 

“The gorgeously decayed Wilton’s is the perfect backdrop to this consciously theatrical production

with Katie Lias’s moody designs creating an

unreal quality to proceedings” 

– British Theatre Guide

 

“The stripped-back, rugged set, designed by

Katie Lias, and ethereal lighting from Tom

White complement the story well.” 

– Broadway World
