A Radio Play

Directed by Trevor Nunn
Starring Michael Gambon and Eileen Atkins
Set and Costume Design by Cherry Truluck
Lighting Design by Phil Hewitt
Produced by Richard Darbourne Ltd
59E59 Theaters, New York (following runs at The Arts Theatre, London and Jermyn Street Theatre)

***** “Cherry Truluck’s set provides the requisite nondescript studio with its constellation of suspended microphones but it is also anchored by a stray shard of Mr. Slocum’s lorry cab, into which Mrs Rooney is burlesquely hoisted and as gently extracted. That may be the typical kind of prop that lends some context to what radio actors do, but there’s no denying that, as audio plays go, great care is paid to visuals here, from costumes (plenty of woolly jumpers, caps and tweed), to Trevor Nunn’s subtly dosed direction and use of space which is like a window opening from the grey walls of the recording booth onto a vast swath of fields behind.” Molly Grogan 2013, Exeunt Magazine

“This was written as a radio play and rather than alter it too much, Nunn and his able designers of set (Cherry Truluck), lighting (Phil Hewitt), and sound (Paul Groothuis) have created a sort of world in between the radio studio and the stage.” Andy Humm 2013, Gay City News

“Cherry Truluck’s imaginative open and perspective-stretching diagonal set – a very successful antidote to the five-door confined proscenium arch staging the writer would have envisaged.” Johnny Fox, The Londonist 2013

“Designer Cherry Truluck’s fragmented wooden frames, glowing hearth, crooked bookcase and creaking staircase sets the scene well for the haunted house” Neil Dowden, Exeunt Magazine 2013

****…a cluttered eyrie of evocative memorabilia in Cherry Truluck’s excellent design. Paul Taylor, The Independent, 2012

****The Times ****The Independent **** WhatsonStage ****Time Out ****Public Reviews *****UK Theatre Web

“Living in a chaotically overstuffed attic, so beautifully detailed in design by Cherry Truluck, it looks like the old second-hand shops that called themselves antique along the lanes in Brighton.”London Theatre Reviews

“Mother Adam is a thoughtful, moving play, featuring a couple of well-matched actors in an atmospheric production that clearly means a great deal to all involved. As such, it would be well worth a visit.” British Theatre Guide, 2012

[MOTHER ADAM] “finds a perfect home in this tiny venue (The Stage fringe theatre of the year) half-filled with Cherry Truluck’s atmospheric set, part grungy kitchen, part invalid’s bedroom.” The Stage, 2012

“I was happy to be in the comfort of Jermyn Street Theatre revisiting a blast from the all-but-forgotten past in such an exemplary production.” Mark Shenton, The Stage 2012

****”Jasper Britton as the mercurial Adam alternately bustles and kneels like a camp butler, his potential as an artist sucked away in the fifteen years he has spent looking after his mother. His very movements are constricted by the bed that dominates Cherry Truluck’s superbly detailed set.
“In a jewelled turban, framed by a gilded bedhead, Linda Marlowe is by turns faded Hollywood star, Greek Tragedy matriarch.
” Public Reviews 2012

**** “…a disturbing and very real sense of life and happiness hanging by a thread… holed up in an attic cluttered with old furniture and rancid memories, lovingly designed by Cherry Truluck and inhabited by [Linda] Marlowe in suburban splendour.” Whatsonstage.com, Michael Coveney 2012

Don Giovanni

Opera Up Close’s production of Mozart’s Opera
Directed by Robin Norton-Hale
Set, Costume and Multimedia Design by Cherry Truluck
Lighting by Phil Hewitt
Soho Theatre

“What is exceptional about Robin Norton Hale’s staging is the level of imaginative skill with which the transfer is managed. Cherry Truluck’s designs provide contemporary metropolitan settings – the middle-class barrister’s dining table where Johnny makes his initial pass at Anna before raping her; a bar; a funeral parlour; a low-lit restaurant – that could all be found within a few yards of the venue.” George Hall (2011) – The Guardian
