Lighting Designer Peter Mumford


Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Richard Eyre

Peter Mumford was the Lighting Designer on Richard Eyre's award-winning revival of Ibsen's Ghosts.

Peter sheds light on how a Lighting Designer works in collaboration with the rest of a theatre company, describes how technological advances have changed the industry, and discusses his thoughts on establishing a career in a field that wasn't formally recognised until the 1950s.
