'The sound of Violins'. One of the only stage directions in the play. How to make use of it? We've decided tat the sound of Violins could symbolise when something from the outside world enters the theatrical realm, when reality and illusion mix. This creates quite a nice of clash and it shows the audience the melding of the two worlds.
The stage has also gone in today. It's not completely finished but the main structure is there. It's incredible to walk on te set for the first time, it makes everything seem more real. If that can happen in this play.
The differen states on the stage need to be heightened. The flick state for the Spectators needs to build to put across the feeling of impatience at the start of the play. It also provides a nice contrast to the slow state of the backstage area.
