The Exeter Blitz Project

The Exeter Blitz Project

Directed and written by Jessica Beck and Helena Enright

Set and Costume Design by Cherry Truluck

The Bikeshed Theatre, Exeter

***** “Dotted around the sides of Cherry Truluck’s sparse design are hung a number of uniforms: nurses, soldiers, fire-wardens navel whites, which brings into mind the everyday heroism that those who lived through this war found themselves thrust into.” Kris Hallett 2013, What’s On Stage

“To create the sense of place and time so vital to the success of a production using verbatim techniques to tell its story, Cherry Truluck’s simple yet evocative set design, incorporating rubble, contemporaneous clothing and a radio, makes the most of the Bike Shed Theatre’s intimate brick and flagstone performance space.” Belinda Dillon 2012, Exeunt Magazine
