LIGHTING DESIGNER


Jack is a four time Off West End nominee for best lighting design and a What’sOnStage Award nominated lighting designer who works across a broad range of theatre and opera, including productions with Trafalgar Studios, Arcola Theatre, and Leicester Curve. He has also won the LIT award for his design on Judy! at the Arts Theatre and the ETC Award in 2014.

Praise for The Plauge:

“Jack Weir’s lighting manages a peripheral dimension partly off – red and green lights menace, and lights tables in a ghostly gleam.” – Fringe Review

“lighting (design by Jack Weir) brings forth the power and poetry of the original novel which is still so relevant today.” – Carolin Kopplin, Theatre Full Stop ★★★★

Praise for Judy!:

“West End style is provided by Jack Weir’s smart and very impressive lighting design. Nostalgia is embraced by moody lighting states which evoke the possibility of youth, the lustful pleasures of performance (on and off stage) and the twilight stages of a powerhouse career. Most impressive are Weir’s evocations of Palace Judy is performance, where the lighting truly takes you to another place, another theatre…” – Stephen Collins, Live Theatre UK ★★★★

He frequently designs a broad range of work including; plays and musicals around the UK, on the London fringe, in the West End and UK tours.
