"...there is some inventive design work from a team that includes Brad Peterson (projections), David L. Arsenault (scenery) and Travis McHale (lighting). The actors perform on a traverse stage: that is, a long strip between two groups of theatergoers who face each other. Such staging does not allow for a traditional backdrop, so, instead, the designers have created a sort of up-drop, if you will. Lights and projections are shined onto a mirrored floor beneath the actors’ feet, and reflected back up onto a low ceiling. It’s simple but very clever, and the resulting washes of deep blue, hellish red and a cluttered snow upon both floor and ceiling help seal off the stage from the audience — a visual reminder of how trapped these stranded souls are."
