A rich mise-en-scene ... moments of stirring beauty ... Lit obliquely by a single misty beam, a girl lies spread-eagled in the dust...

- Helen Shaw, The New York Sun

One Year Lease, which has a reputation for high production values, does not disappoint ... While sensory overload is the norm, the directors and their production team also appreciate the power of stillness... in some of the concluding scenes ... the torrent of words, lights and images tapers off and  a still, softly lit landscape emerges where the TV screens reflect only the action itself onstage.

The set design and spectacular lighting amplify and support the complex imagery of the play.
