Set & Costume Design

Hull Truck Theatre

Directed By Tom Saunders

Lighting by Jessie Addinall

Costume Supervisor Paula Grovesnor

The management of costuming a large cast as well as making the green wood feel like an otherworldly and magical space where dreams are reality and fairies reign, falls to Emily Bestow. The subtlety and neon joy of the set and costume design creates a real sense of stage magic not easily achieved. The reveal of the fairy kingdom made me want to watch the show three more times. Bestow’s design, when coupled with Jessie Addinall’s lighting, is a feast for the eyes. It has all the sequins, fairy lights and flower crowns that your heart can desire.
