Robertson&Selbie/Higlett, Theatre Clwyd, May 1986
"Simon Higlett's design is a blasted mansion of ten entrances on two levels which resembles now a balustraded rotunda, now a scaffolded loading bay. It provides the flexibility of arena always needed for this play, and with Pat Nelder's lighting, is equally plausible as Roman senate house, Italian battlefield and echoing mausoleum." Michael Coveney, Financial Times 27.5.86
Opening Date: 26 May 1986
Theatre: Theatre Royal, Haymarket
