“A heaviness hangs over Alex Eales’s neat domestic set, a ragged crater blown out of the back wall. Behind is revealed the rocky bank of the Belmont river, where half of Portia Coughlan’s mind and soul lie at all times…” The Guardian

“It’s like Portia herself has designed the production: Alex Eales’s set is all homely up front – a sparse living room – with a huge hole blown into the back of it giving us a view onto bare, black rock, like a gateway into the underworld.” Time Out ****
