Amadeus - The National Theatre
The modern and the classic are seamlessly merged as the black-clad orchestra in twenty-first-century clothes swirl around the foppish coats and wigs of eighteenth-century Vienna, while Chloe Lamford’s striking design unites toy-theatre stylings to represent the exuberance of opera with wobbly scenery and draped curtains, alongside minimal furniture, often just a piano or single chair to represent a room that leave lots of bleak dark space for Salieri’s jealousy and, later regret, to grow.
— ★★★★ The Reviews Hub
God Bless The Child - Royal Court
Chloe Lamford’s set sits us at the edges of a Year 4 classroom complete with wall displays, tiny coat hooks and hexagonal desks. Flags and cardboard raindrops hang from the strip-lit ceiling. It’s perfect.
— The Times
1984 - Almeida Theatre
Special mention must go to Chloe Lamford’s design, which at first looks drab and retro, yet explodes into an onslaught of fierce light and buzzing energy. It’s the heart of a show that is sometimes grating but often stunning.
— ★★★★ Evening Standard
