Posters, flyers and other publicity material for the première of Alcestis, the last work by late poet laureate Ted Hughes, have been designed by Leeds group Thompson Design. Hughes donated the work to Barrie Rutter, founder and artistic director of theatre company Northern Broadsides, with the wish that the first performance be in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. A Gustav Klimt-inspired theme used in both the set and costume design has been followed through in artwork created by illustrator Fletcher Sibthorp.
