Very Special Guest Star

Omnibus Theatre, Nov 2021

Written by Tom Wright

Directed by Rikki Beadle Blair

Set and Costume Design by Natalie Johnson

Lighting Design by Alex Thomas

"The action plays out on a smart, uncluttered set designed by Natalie Johnson. Verdant houseplants, a sprawling teal sofa and weighty, muted-gold drapes eloquently suggest the character’s taste, prosperity and fixation on material comforts – every artfully arranged throw cushion is part of a conscious effort to project an appearance of suburban stability." - The Stage

"Set designer Natalie Johnson completely transforms the Omnibus space removing one of the false walls to reveal real windows looking out on to the street and with an enormous green sofa and yellow curtains, her drawing room is sleek, and is a nod to the privileges of the owners, Phil and Michael." - The Reviews Hub

"All set in one room, Natalie Johnson’s set is a character in itself, as a large velvet green sofa dominates the stage. Warm lampshades are placed on either side and the theatre’s back windows are used as part of the living room. It creates the comforting, suburban atmosphere we’re all familiar with." - London Theatre Reviews
