Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life

“Director David Lampard has delivered a show that carefully balances hilarity with poignancy. The funnier moments are deliberately over-the-top, but the darker moments are handled with tenderness and sincerity. Lampard has designed a very clever set of surprisingly high production quality…” Allison Hillbig, Theatre People

Next to Normal

“Director David Lampard's most recent works have had a distinct trademark of excellence, and Next to Normal is certainly no exception. He has assembled a fine cast and crew who show commitment to his vision – a fresh non-replica interpretation. Lampard's work can be seen most tangibly in his additional role as designer, with the striking and ingenious set design.” Ben Nielsen, Australian Stage Online

Elegies: A Song Cycle

“Director David Lampard has gathered a strong ensemble of singers and has designed a charming autumnal setting to accentuate both the beauty and the simplicity of the music and the lyrics… the talents of Lampard, Sexton and the ensemble meld to produce astonishing quality and big emotions from modest musical theatre.” Stephanie Johnson, Australian Stage
