'Matthew Xia directs with sensitivity and Bethany Gupwell’s lighting design is particularly evocative, working hard to ground this thoughtful play.'

- The Guardian -

'In a scene where Yvette imagines speaking to the man her daughter injured, Bethany Gupwell’s lighting design frames Yvette in the doorway, working beautifully with Xia’s blocking to throw a thread of connection between Yvette and “Mr David Egan”.'

- The Arts Desk -

'At times, thanks to Bethany Gupwell’s thoughtful lighting, the furniture is so unobtrusive that it’s perfectly possible to believe the scene is an Indian rice field, or a hotel room.'
