Original Set Design
Adrian studied design at the Slade School. He was House Designer at London’s Mermaid Theatre between 1964-1970. House Designer at Leicester Phoenix, and subsequently at the Haymarket between 1971-1980. He designed many productions during this time, some of which transferred to the West End, including MY FAIR LADY, CAUSE CELEBRE and TOMFOOLERY. He went on to be the House Designer at the Old Vic between 1980-1982, where his credits included MERCHANT OF VENICE and THE REPLAPSE.
Adrian began working in Israel in 1968, designing productions for the Habimah, Cameri, Haifa and Jerusalem theatres. His association with Sobol began with original productions of WEININGER’S NIGHT, GHETTO, PALESTINIAN GIRL, ADAM, JERUSALEM SYNDROME and NICE TONI. This association led to his working in Germany and the USA. Many of these productions raised highly controversial issues, both political and social, such as the ‘great silence’ surrounding discussions of the Holocaust and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Since 2000 Adrian worked on designs for US and UK tours of MISS SAIGON and OLIVER! for Cameron Mackintosh and his associates.
