Northern Stage

directed by Peter Hackett
scenic design by Caite Hevner
costume design by Amy Sutton
lighting design by Stuart Duke
sound design by Ben Montmagny


"Caite Hevner Kemp's elegant, restrained scenic design gives us view of a double bed through French doors in Orwell's hotel suite.  Technically, the set piece is unnecessary, but emotionally it's fraught with possibility. Kemp's use of a curved red couch at center stage also creates possibilities - of a bridge or a divide - which Hackett fully explores with his versatile staging." 

-Meg Brazill, Seven Days Vermont

"Northern Stage's elegant physical production was particularly effective. Caite Hevner Kemp's simple setting combining hotel rooms and lecture halls was beautifully delineated, as were dramatic moments by Stuart Duke's lighting." 

-Jim Lowe, The Times Argus
