“The perversity of Solness’s mind (and of the strange play he inhabits) is given sensory life by Rob Howell’s set, which suggests a charred-wood blueprint out of nightmares; Hugh Vanstone’s lighting; and a score by Gary Yershon that is the sound of megalomania.” New York Times 19th Feb 2016

“Matthew Warchus’s beautifully controlled and intelligent production is all shifting nuance and finely calibrated detail, from Gary Yershon’s subtle score to the faint drift of dry ice that intimates Hilde’s fatal otherworldliness…” Daily Telegraph, 4th Feb 2016
