In Neil Warmington’s powerful design, the central area occupied by Willy’s house in Brooklyn is surrounded by something like a Hooverville, one of the brazier-lit encampments of homeless people that grew up in America in the hungry 1930’s.
The Guardian on Death of a Salesman, Dundee Rep
...staged on a chilling and magnificent watery set by Neil Warmington, this production is of breathtaking quality.
The Guardian on Further Than The Furthest Thing
The outstanding feature of the production – in every sense – is Neil Warmington's set: a giant moving "screen" across which images "sketched" in light alternate with Ian William Galloway's videos, and stay etched in the memory.
