I am a theatre designer based in the UK. I am interested in work that is informed and driven by context - sociopolitical, geographical, temporal .etc. As an immigrant from Singapore, I have particularly enjoyed working in and learning about various parts of the UK, and look forward to continuing to do so.

The Making of a Monster at Wales Millenium Centre
"TK Hay’s design for the set is deceptively simple, but it’s this half-pipe design that becomes a character in itself throughout and facilitates an incredible moment at the end of the show."
Wales Theatre Review
Constellations at The Stephen Joseph Theatre
"Robinson’s vision for the play is delicately balanced and elegantly realised. In TK Hay and Jane Lalljee’s design, fibre optic lights wrap the stage, dazzling at first, then cocooning and intricately enmeshing the performers."
The Apology by New Earth Theatre at The Arcola
"Designer TK Hay has papered the walls, floor and staircase in what must be the pages of the UN’s report, effectively emphasising the vast numbers of women whose story this is across Asia in the mid to late 1940s..."
An Adventure at the Octagon Theatre Bolton
"Kash Arshad’s subtly clever production matches the scope and scale of Patel’s ambitions throughout, meaning their journey is as arresting visually as it is emotionally. Much of this is down to TK Hay, who won the Linbury Prize for stage design to work on this production in 2019. "
"...coup de théâtre ending as designer T K Hay's fairly simple traverse set comes to life for the final showdown between man and wife."
