This run was 5 nights, and we hope to develop the production for a full run in London.
We used a devised design process where I was involved in rehearsals to develop the design simultaneously with the action and characters.
The set was stripped back, and the drawings on floor and walls developed in rehearsals in response to actor movement, use of space and emotions. This element would be on of the main things we would like to develop.
The two fridges onstage acted as detailed character spaces, opened in the scene changes, they held costumes and props for the next scene. The fridges, lit up on the inside provided a stark change of atmosphere and pace.
