This play could easily be a period piece. But with the whimsical nature of the mastiff and the moorhen I thought I might try something a little more brash. So this design is definitely period accurate. It’s loud. Almost absurd. But for a play that’s a blend of comedy and macabre…I think we all deserve a little absurdism.
