Brief Encounter - Empire Cinema Haymarket
Jon Driscoll and Gemma Carrington provide some clever projection design, which is incorporated into the show very cleverly; from the train steaming through the station, to characters walking from the state straight onto the screen, this provides a large dose of theatre magic.

— ★★★★★ Broadway World UK
The Exorcist - Phoenix Theatre
I won’t give away what happens or describe how the show achieves its effects, but suffice it to say that all the key moments from the film are given their own stage incarnation here, with Jon Driscoll and Gemma Carrington’s projections playing a large part in conveying the eerie atmosphere
