“Love and regret filter through the irony of the first act, as daylight filters through the patio doors (Simon Corder is responsible for the beautiful light).” – Suzanne Daumann, Una Voce Poco Fa, 9 October 2012

“With the beautiful sets and refined costumes by Joanna Parker, and showing a great economy of means as well as undeniable scenic intelligence, we are in front of a set of noble simplicity and casual elegance. In the same vein, Simon Corder, responsible for lights, presents the different faces of blue, blending perfectly with the pink humour of the work.” – Sabino Pena Arcia, Applaudir, 21 October 2012
