Rob will be working once again with lighting designer Rick Fisher this month, helping him transfer the acclaimed play Consent from the National Theatre to London’s Pinter Theatre.
This continues a collaboration which stretches back almost two decades, and most recently has included productions of Billy Elliot in the US, Holland, Japan and touring the UK, and the new musical Mata Hari in Japan.
Rob will be serving as associate lighting designer and lighting programmer on the show as it is adapted by director Roger Michell, designer Hildegard Bechtler, lighting designer Rick Fisher and sound designer John Leonard from the traverse staging it enjoyed at the National’s Dorfman Theatre to the more traditional environs of the Pinter Theatre. The Pinter - and its previous incarnation, the Comedy, is also a theatre Rob has enjoyed a long association with, from A Glass Menagerie twenty years ago, to The Children’s Hour, The Browning Version/Harlequinade, Death and the Maiden, and Merrily We Roll Along.
Consent, written by Nina Raine, is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and the National Theatre; it opens at the Pinter on May 29th.
