Sutton House, Hackney

October 2016 & October 2017

"The production was designed by Isobel Power Smith and was a powerful example of using the limited technical palette of the National Trust venue to its best advantage. The limitations were in lighting and were overcome to be subtle and effective. Costumes played a major part in defining the changes in time and supported the narrative effectively." Live Theatre UK

"How you react will depend on your susceptibility to this kind of thing. I found myself retreating frequently into the safety of the herd, although of course that safety may always prove illusory. At one point we were herded into a room and surrounded by eerie phantasmal creatures holding candles, chanting in Latin and closing us in…" **** The Peg
