“Mother Pig and her three offspring are up-sized by wearing Jason Denvir’s clever half-body fat suits. Denvir is also responsible for the set which is simple but no less effective, and presumably had to be designed around that belonging to The Commitments.”

“There is no sign that Drewe (who also directs), designer Jason Denvir and choreographer Ewan Jones have been limited by staging the piece around the set of The Commitments, in situ at the Palace Theatre. Instead, the colourful, imaginative approach creates a narrative that flows effortlessly as Bar, Bee and Q learn that life is best when ‘families stick together’.”
The Stage – Lisa Martland


“He finds his way to the building site where the pigs, with the ingenious help of designer Jason Denvir, have erected structures of straw and sticks – with a Stomp-like percusssion number to set the mood – and the more durable brick bolthole that opens out spaciously, and colourfully, to accommodate the happy family reunion at the end.” – Micheal Coveney


“Jason Denvir’s set comes into its own in the final act, when the three pigs’ houses are revealed. They’re rather sumptuous creations; one heaves with hay, another is made up of spindly sticks and the pièce de résistance, the brick house, comes complete with a smoking fireplace. The audience bursts into spontaneous applause.”
