"its world pulses with otherworldly undercurrents, beautifully sustained by Gareth Fry’s sound design" Ben Brantley, New York Times

"Gareth Fry did the sensational sound design." Ben Brantley, New York Times

"Gareth Fry's soundscape sends a menacing pulse through the action that resolves into the thump of a frightened heart." Susannah Clapp, Observer

"Accompanied by Gareth Fry’s evocative sound design, the production constantly teeters on an anticipatory edge, toying with the film’s horror origins but converting it to a more fitting level of suspense for the stage" Ian Foster, The Public Review

"t's as unexpected, and as unusual, as anything on Shaftesbury Avenue in recent years, with ... a soundscape by Gareth Fry that sets new standards in atmospheric scariness." Michael Coveney, WhatsOnStage

"There’s an air of wistfulness, longing and loneliness to John Tiffany’s appealing, occasionally ethereal production, which is underscored by a thrillingly haunting soundscape from Gareth Fry." Fiona Montford, Evening Standard
