From the reviews of this year’s The Lighthouse Keepers, which premièred on 4 July in Cheltenham:
It is a superbly atmospheric piece with sympathetic portrayals of father
and son by William Oxborrow and Thomas Howes. The 11-strong ensemble under
Martyn Brabbins’ fine direction demonstrated that you don’t need a huge
symphony orchestra to conjure up a storm.
Roger Jones, Seen and Heard International, 5 July 2013
Sawer’s music is often brilliantly inventive, evoking the gathering
emotional and physical storm, and mingling live sounds with their distorted
echoes. The two actors Thomas Howes and William Oxborrow did all they could to
loosen the work’s joints and make it speak.
