"Kevin Jenkins has designed a space which is functional, artistic and intelligent. The grandeur of the Alving estate is clear, but with missing glass and disjointed struts, the house is literally 'broken' like the lives played out within. The darkness around the set allows for the gloom referenced by Oswald to be well-realised whilst adding to the claustrophobia of Helene's 'prison,' trapped as she is in a sham marriage, her duties and her misery." Nik Arkham

"As always, the set and costume from designer Kevin Jenkins are simply astonishing. The detail is something else, from Engstrand’s weathered leather coat, to the rusting and water stained architecture of the Alving house, to the plump velvet cushions Oswald hugs to his chest. The care and attention to it all is just wonderful, and Jenkins provides an appropriate playground for the festering sores of the story to open on. The very house itself seems to be suffering under the weight of Captain Alving’s sins, rotting away to nothing." Carly Halse, Female Arts
