This is an intimate piece which is often performed in small studio theatres. At the Haymarket it was to be a main house production. To give it intimacy we placed several rows of seating on the stage and built a stage over the front of the auditorium making a theatre in the round. By blocking off the circle we were able to created a studio space. A simple children's playground roundabout provided the setting.
