"Multiple sources of lighting from ceiling, floor and the wings enveloped the performance space – with illumination heightening the visceral emotions evoked in each scene. The final glow of lighting effects used to close the play were spectacular and poignantly rounded off the show."

Douglas Robbins- Arts Hub


"...the creative team were the most spectacular storytellers, with designers Simona Cosentini and Simone Tesorieri, alongside award-winning lighting designer Jason Glenwright creating such an impactful atmosphere through simplicity and focus."

Virag Dombay- Broadway World

"Design by Simona Cosentini and Simone Tesoreri, lighting design by Jason Glenwright, and sound design/composition by Kim Busty Beatz Bowers really turned this production up to eleven."

Elise Lawrence - Limelight

"Just as the storytelling creates deceptive subtlety through simplicity and focus, so designers Simona Cosentini and Simone Tesorieri and lighting designer Jason Glenwright achieve maximum impact through unpretentious means, an illumination of a scene loca­tion on a scoreboard or a snap-cue in the lighting being all that’s needed to establish time and place."

Martin Buzacott- The Australian


"Jason Glenwright’s lighting design is a key player in the comedic precision of the transformation of Elizabeth and the worlds."

Kyle Walmsley- Arts Hub

"Jason Glenwright’s lighting design holds the shows’ realistic beginnings together with imaginative depth, as well as exploiting moments of mystical proportions with sophistication and pertinence. Glenwright goes from creating simple yet beautiful atmosphere to exploring eery environments to differentiate the Elizabeth psyches. Through smooth alterations and understated overlays Glenwright progresses from playing with sparkling disco dance floor or flashing thunderstorm to splitting the stage and the characters’ essences visually through juxtaposing green and orange hues. As distinctly different colours cast across the space and divide Burton’s body, the Burton’s physical performance of the two Elizabeth’s is extended into a purposeful yet beautiful manipulation of space."

Rhumer Diball- XS Entertainment


"Glenwright’s lighting is astute, illuminating the separate journeys the two have taken."

Cameron Pegg- The Australian


"Matt Schoulten uses Jason Glenwright’s lighting to cut, punch and reinforce the character impact of the strong cast in a tightly orchestrated creative balance. Sensitive patrons should be aware that the lightning techniques can be sudden, intensive and startling."

The Australian- Martin Buzacott


"Lighting, by Jason Glenwright, is a highlight of this production—the lighting during the courtroom scene being particularly noteworthy. However, it’s the combination of lighting and set that occasionally drew gasps of wonder from the audience with lights embedded into the set’s tiled walls cleverly used throughout the play."

Aussie Theatre- Dan Betts



"Jason Glenwright's lighting design is fundamental to the success of this play. Light, half light, colour and silhouette are employed to great atmospheric, symbolic and dramatic effect. Darkness or semi darkness helps convey the grimness of the Animals lives while Glenwright saturates the chilling show trial scene with a blood red light.”

Canberra Times



"The lighting was so delicate it melted into the restrained and elegant set."

Realtime, Kathryn Kelly
