EVERYTHING THEATRE

DUST - EDINBURGH, LONDON & NYC


"Jack Weir’s visionary lighting design acquires a dramatic role in this solo-show, where a woman called Alice shares her afterthoughts following her own suicide."

EVENING STANDARD

No Villain - Trafalgar Studios, London


"Jack Weir's lighting is exceptional too: moody, insistent and faintly dream-like, the way he uses light to shape scenes is exemplary. The top of the play is bright but listless, the energy of the light strangely unsure while the family waits in the heat for Arny's return. Shadows of substance reflecting cross-beams or roof supports which mark out the area as one of work, not home life. The light is denser, somehow, in the factory, reflecting the thick, uncompromising difficulty that Abe is experiencing there, and, somehow, it all looks like you are watching an old movie - the light is grainy and sinister..."

JUDY! - Arts Theatre, London


"West End style is provided by Jack Weir's smart and very impressive lighting design. Nostalgia is embraced by moody lighting states which evoke the possibility of youth, the lustful pleasures of performance (on and off stage) and the twilight stages of a powerhouse career. Most impressive are Weir's evocations of Palace Judy is performance, where the lighting truly takes you to another place, another theatre..."

FOUR PLAY - THEATRE 503, LONDON


"Weir’s lighting design is absolutely stunning. Hundreds of colour LEDs which light, flash, and change hue to create warmth, cold, and some exciting scene changes. Weir adds subtle but luscious topical blushes on top of playing with the light boards behind the plywood. Four Play is possibly Theatre503’s most impressive lighting design for a show yet."

BAD GIRLS - UNION THEATRE, LONDON - OFFIE NOMINATED FOR BEST LIGHTING


"Jack Weir's lighting is outstanding. In the absence of physical scenic changes it is down to the lighting plots to suggest time and place and it is rare that an off West End show is found to offer such distinctive clarity.. Jack Weir’s inspired lighting design introduces us to each of the women, shining a spotlight on them as they each tell a sorry tale of how they ended up banged up"
