“Alex Eales’s set is an arresting fortress-like structure, revolving to expose slits and staircases… there are big emotional pitches along the way and it is a slick idea, elegantly staged.” The Guardian


“It’s a spectacularly claustrophobic watch, dominated by Alex Eales’ stunningly designed, tardice-like revolving world of towering, impermeable walls, Escher-like staircases and movable spaces that, at times, are visibly closing in on Hamlet.” B24/7


“The minimalist set by Alex Eales is monochrome and handsome – a twirling centrepiece that reveals steep stairways and hidden panels…” Plays International
