Lighting design by Joshua Pharo

Composition and sound design by David Lewington


"Beneath Joshua Pharo's warm golden light, designer Emma Bailey sits two wax pillars melting – old structures gradually falling away. Bullish pushes on elsewhere – a celebration of choice that never loses sight of the struggle of choosing, but lays the scope of options out in full sight. It's a big, quick step up." What's On Stage****

"It’s performed by a crack cast of trans and gender-fluid performers who sport little gold horns, pencilled on moustaches and glitter beards as they mash up the stories and embrace a range of musical styles from rap to ballads." The Guardian***

"...innovative and uplifting 65-minute show." The Reviews Hub****

"Bullish is an urgent, important and necessary exploration of gender that makes its point with coherence in the most gorgeous of ways." Everything-Theatre****

"Joshua Pharo’s lighting design and Emma Bailey’s design were truly magnificent." Thespyinthestalls*****

"The set design is minimal, but it doesn't matter – we are told from the start that this a mental labyrinth. Mirrors cage the stage, reflecting and refracting identity and broken light." Hiive****
