Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Built for Theatre Royal Bath, We were charged with creating a 50’s ‘pad’ with all the period detailing necessary.

The ceiling was a big feature, being 8m wide, they didn’t want permanent flying lines, or drifts to hold it up, so a fair bit of trussing was added in to stop it sagging in the middle- nothing worse.

Within the ceiling are 4 unistrut across stage lighting positions, tucked up so the lanterns and fixtures were hidden from view.

With steel framed flattage, we rendered that in a teak wood effect, with the ceiling also having some pine- in that old school 50’s way!

Brick Vac form on the doorways, a cnc brick floor all textured and looked great against the teak.

With some period style architectural bookcases and shelving, it all came together to look just the part.

The production has had rave reviews- to name a few-

What’s on Stage5 stars-  “If this isn’t West End bound I’ll eat my hat. And once there, expect Higgins in particular to be getting quite the awards buzz.”

The Telegraph– 5 Stars- “Adrian Noble’s superb adaptation of the Edward Albee classic leaves Charles Spencer feeling bruised yet elated”
