reviews

'This is a drama played with real vigour and subtlety by its young cast on the muddy detritus of Amy Jane Cook's impressive traverse design.'

'This is the theatrical equivalent of an adventure playground.'

on Where's My Seat?

'Amy Jane Cook has surpassed herself with the design of this show....within very limited space she has created a hotel room, a pub, and a taxi. The attention to detail is amazing, making each space feel very real and allowing the audience to completely lose themselves in the world of the character in front of them.'

'It would be impossible not to be blown away by the genius set design and the technicality of this production.'

- Karris Clarke / Get The Chance /

on The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

'The set design has real streak of genius transforming from the Hoff household to Mr. Boo’s club'

- Abbie Rippon / The Reviews Hub /

on The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

'Featuring one of the smartest uses of a stage I think I’ve ever seen, Little Voice conveyed a whole street worth of locations in and around two separate stages...The grand reveal garnered many an ooh and ahh from the audience.'

on The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

'The design team lead by Amy Jane Cook should take a bow. The set and effects, from shooting stars to atomic explosions, was a triumph, perfectly enhancing the narrative'

- Peggy Woodcock / The Leader /

on Insignificance

'Designer Amy Cook makes terrific use of the crumbling grandeur of the old Limehouse town hall'

- Lyn Gardner / The Guardian /

on Limehouse Nights

'Cook’s design embraces Hull Truck’s stage, exposing and incorporating the mechanics beneath as though to symbolise the gaping emptiness of the past that hangs over the characters.'
