It’s Willows Wednesday!
Here are two views of the set model, created by our ATD Jillian Warburton. The model doesn’t have all of the walls (in case you’re thinking stage left looks rather bare), bannisters, or the overhead beams.
Here’s the concept: Per the script, the entire story is told within the confines of the abandoned Toad Hall. Because it is a memory play, we didn’t want solid walls; therefore, the audience will only see partial walls. The actors will use the furniture from Toad Hall to tell the story. The audience will be surprised (I hope) as to how we use the space and the furniture.
Here’s an example:
We experimented in rehearsal. What do you think this is?
The Wind in the Willows runs October 17-20.
