"Impressive Sound Design"

Time Out

"Tom Lishman’s sound design delivers subtle reinforcement where needed without sacrificing the tender, natural sound."

The Public Reviews

"Tom Lishman's lush score
of sea murmurs, bird sound and music
establishes a familiar mood of period opulence."

The Guardian

"Farmyard noises greet the audience as it arrives and there’s an obligato of squelches and plops, cackles, grunts, bellows and snores as the action progresses; sound design is by Tom Lishman."

What's On Stage

"Tom Lishman's tropical soundtrack … makes the theatre seem hot."

Financial Times

"Tom Lishman’s surround-sound effects, of thunderous passing underground trains and cooing pigeons, are equally carefully considered."

San Francisco Examiner

"Tom Lishman's effective and imaginative sound design assists in bringing out the brooding violence"

Time Out

"The production also benefits from … Tom Lishman's evocative sound design, a battery of effects that includes airplanes, traffic, crowds, prison doors, and various kinds of music."

Lighting & Sound America

"The sense of horror swells; Paul Bull and Tom Lishman's sound design fills the air, first with the snicking of the barber's scissors, then with strange gulping, wetly chewing noises and finally with wails of grief."

The Times

"Special mention should go to Tom Lishman's invaluable sound design, which communicates everything from the subtle rushing of the wind to the deafening sounds (and vibrations) of contemporary warfare."
