This production was essentially part of a double bill in which students and staff at the academy engaged the audience in a preamble consisting of demonstrations and explanations of technical theatre including Lighting Design, Sound Design, Costume design and costume making/buying, properties making, buying, adapting, scenic techniques with Caroline Dolton – all explained and guided by Stephen Rebbeck.
This culminated in the set being erected in preparation for the production of Act Without Words in the second half of the evening/Matinee.
