Set in a manual telephone exchange on the eve of automation, the set took the essential technological components of the exchange but adapted them to create an environment which reflected the characters' states of mind. The same approach was taken to the use of period details in the costumes. Main image is the designer's photo of the set under working lights Other images by Sandra Seitner
