“There is a cast of only three but the combination of designer Georgia Lowe’s video wall, with its two
illuminated cubes, Elliot Grigg’s lighting and Richard Hammarton’s sound design give Lisa Blair’s
production a powerful extra dimension, enhancing what might have otherwise felt static.” The Stage

**** “Sure-footed young director Lisa Blair confidently leads a production team as achingly cool and
youthful as the smooth-operating, hoodie-clad demon Mephisto Faust conjures up (Jacques Miche).
Georgia Lowe’s deceptively simple box design is actually a box of tricks, on which video designer
Zsolt Balogh projects a suggestion of over-sized shelves of books green with mould, morphing into
vivid purples and yellows once Daisy Fairclough's disturbingly adolescent Gretchen reawakens Faust's
sexual desire.” Whatsonstage
