The Weekend Notes Australia, Reviewer Emma Jane

Sound designer Julian Starr's work is similarly minimalist and subtle, to great effect.

The Edinburgh List, Reviewer Alistair Maxwell  

                           ★★★★

The damp cavern of Underbelly's Big Belly venue is filled with Julian Starr's murky score, and the soundtrack helps to conjure a feeling of almost Lovecraftian madness

            The Spy In The Stalls, Reviewer Joanna Hetherington 

                                           ★★★★

Keeping the work in its original period with fitting music (Julian Starr) gives it a contemporary feel in pace and movement.

Violet1-700x455.jpg

A nuanced and subtle performance by Sanders who perfectly captures both characters, switching between them with ease, aided by Julian Starr’s eloquently executed sound design.

            LondonTheatre1, Reviewer Laura Thomas 

                               ★★★★

BroadwayBaby UK, Reviewer Christopher Kelsey

                             ★★★★★

A special mention must also go to Julian Starr as the sound designer. The sound cues are delicate but well suited, transporting the audience from day to night and along the coast at the slightest effects which truly help bring this magical tale to life.

                                                North West End, Reviewer Isla Robinson

                                                                       ★★★★★

Julian Starr’s inventive sound design clear establishes an atmosphere of dread. At moments when Aisha’s abuser returns audio cues, such as the turn of the key, inspire a response of fear. Jarrett compels the audience to listen to these noises - either audible or imagined.
