"Elliott Squire’s smart design blends seamlessly into the Union Theatre’s atmospheric industrial space. The stage’s wooden floorboards and illuminated doorways give way to raw brick, where a vast portrait of Stalin hangs overhead, overlooking the horrors of his hellish regime."
-Dave Fargnoli, The Stage
"It’s this apartment which serves as the main point of staging, and is dressed perfectly by Elliott Squire in period furniture which both highlights the era, and the couple’s relative privilege within society. This is in contrast to Squire’s costumes for the ensemble which are dust covered and evoke the sense of death and despair."
-Greg Stewart, Theatre Weekly
