Women to watch and other prime movers
From a host of fast-rising women designers, I'd pick her out, largely on the strength of her astonishing set for Pinter's ONE FOR THE ROAD which combined austere economy with a hint of terrifying unseen worlds
PORGY AND BESS
Set design is the art of telling stories through visual language. Follow set designer Liz Ascroft as she prepares for the Broadway-classic Porgy Bess at The Royal Danish Operahouse.
THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE
Sarah Frankcom's fine new production, brilliantly designed by Liz Ascroft in a style that combines grim realism with witty touches of surrealism, as well as delivering a thrilling, flaming coup de theatre, has exactly the right mixture of warmth and guts.
Yet to see the two lads huddled together in bed - vulnerable beneath the vast overhanging balloon-globe that dominates Liz Ascroft’s at once urban and kookily otherworldly set - is to get the message of both how complicated, and also how wordlessly easy, adolescence can be.
All this is enhanced by Richard Jones's lighting, and especially by the wonderfully extravagant dressing of Liz Ascroft. Her recurrently interesting designs have been the most consistant quality of this Everyman season.
