Vancouver, BC: The best aspect of this production for me was the way David Roberts' set design and Ted Roberts' lighting came together to create a realistic setting of a typical studio space in a school or community centre. At first we see only a opaque, reflecting rear wall of the studio up stage but back lighting reveals a corridor with more rooms opening off the far side. I really liked this effect - it transported me back to some of the weird and wonderful classes I took at local community centres.
