Praise for the Work

'Anna Fleischle’s design ingeniously suggests the lumber of old inheritance and allegiance: a stage cluttered with household objects as the audience take their seats is cleared to show a mildewed gingerbread house.' The Observer

'Anna Fleischle’s design patches the house with brick, tiles, blank windows – layers of history and denial.' THE GUARDIAN

'the production is visually exquisite. Designer Anna Fleischle sets the scene in the shadow of the derelict façade of the patriarch’s home. Below, as the public comes in, the large thrust is a junkyard of memories and a collection of frankly enviable vintage objects. The space tells a story even before the show begins. The actors come on stage and declutter it before starting the narration.'
