A Play bases on the Susan Hill novel of the same name. As the play jumps both time and place with many locations we decided on the use of projections or video mapping. The art was to mould the projected images into the solid set and vice versa.. It had to be seamless much as a movie whilst still retaining a sense of theatre. 3 actors played all the various parts with minimal but symbolic costume changes. It was a touring production.
