I wanted the stage surface to be reminiscent of both swirly bed-sit carpet and the shimmering litter-strewn surface of a city river. Having areas of real water as well was important from the start. "... played in the round on Atlanta Duffy's set that evokes both stolen childhoods and an alluring seaside freedom." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian. "Atlanta Duffy's undulating metallic dais conjures urban wasteland and domestic squalor." Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph.
