Amy is a set and costume designer working in theatre and performance. She trained on the prestigious Motley course. She was the winner of Best Design at the Wales Theatre Awards 2017 for Constellation Street directed by Chelsey Gillard and Dan Jones for The Other Room, Cardiff.
“Amy Jane Cook has surpassed herself with the design of this show….within very limited space she has created a hotel room, a pub, and a taxi. The attention to detail is amazing, making each space feel very real and allowing the audience to completely lose themselves in the world of the character in front of them.” Constellation Street/The Reviews Hub
Amy’s latest designs for Jellyfish at the Bush Theatre and Not Talking at the Arcola are both nominated for Off West End Awards 2018.
Upcoming productions include The Funeral Director by Iman Qreshi winner of the Papatango New Writing Prize, it will open at Southwark Playhouse and is directed by Hannah Hauer King.

“Amy Jane Cook’s stage design is used to stunning effect ….. The set – a pier, some fairground lights, an imagined sea tipping off stage – exquisitely captures the faded glory of Skegness.”
“Evocatively designed by Amy Jane Cook; the floor has been carpeted with sand and brightly coloured arcade lights rainbow the walls.”

“It’s especially striking to have the performers play live on the echoing upright piano that takes centre stage in Amy Jane Cook’s spare and carefully crafted set.”
“Amy Jane Cook’s set, furnished only by two wooden chairs and a piano, is lit in stylish squares by Zoe Spurr.”

With Amy Cooks bold and brash costume designs, the characters feel like a very vivid memory of a time just on the outskirts of memory…. The set design has real streak of genius transforming from the Hoff household to Mr. Boo’s club”
