'...Amy Yardley's clever design, first of a kitchen, angled walls centred on the stage then of huge rocks on the beach again helping to centre the action without Prenger ever appearing lost. Thoughtful and skilful design.' - Roger Clarke

'...an attractive production...Amy Yardley’s design, with its sky-blue shutters and floral window boxes, conjures up an Italianate sunniness; to convey bustle or tumult, the stage is strewn with flowers or pelted with lemons.'

Sam Marlowe, The Times

'Around the World in 80 Days' - Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal

"Amy Yardley’s set is terrific: evocative, flexible, witty, permitting everything from the Albany and a suttee to an elephant ride and train-roof chase" Libby Purves
