PRG XL Video recently supplied a lighting package for the Donmar Warehouse production of Welcome Home, Captain Fox! – a new version of Anouilh’s Le Voyageur Sans Bagage, written by Anthony Weigh.

The production centres around the return of a man believed missing in France during World War II, who arrives at his family home in The Hamptons. But is the man really the missing Jack Fox?

The comic-scenario unfolds through two acts, with the action taking place in the Fox family home. Scenes set in various rooms of the house, primarily the drawing room and Jack Fox’s bedroom, range from day through to night.

Working with the Donmar’s George Dives, PRG XL Video’s John Pauls supplied a package of lighting technology to the specification of multi-award-winning Lighting Designer, Hugh Vanstone.

The main lighting for the rooms stemmed from a dozen Source Four LED Lustr fixtures. Additional effects were achieved using Mac TW1 washes, Impression X4S LED units, and a pair of Clay Paky Stormys. A final scene reveal saw the upstage wall made semi-transparent using back lighting to reveal Captain Fox’s eventual fate.

PRG XL Video’s Account Manager, John Pauls, commented: “We’re delighted to work with the Donmar to supply lighting for Hugh Vanstone’s design for this new production. The Donmar is such an intimate space that lighting designers can be really creative, even using just a small number of fixtures.”
