"Design-wise, Constance Villemot excels. Villemot using a small rostrum to shrink the playing space further, authentically creating a cramped, uninspiring dorm-room decorated with three uniform beds and leaden lockers for any possessions, an adroit, veristic depiction of the dreary reality of the women’s lives. Almost prison-like in nature, magnificently fostering this sense of their entrapment in both the limbo of their reality and their own minds, having little to occupy them as they wait. Anchoring the piece well in this Direct Provision Centre and creating the perfect greying backdrop for the vivid imaginations of the women to take flight.." - Ask the Ushers
