For this workshop production, which is part of the curriculum at the Brown University/Trinity Rep MFA program, the proscribed limitations preclude the use of significant design elements or advanced production values; rather, the director and actors have been asked to focus on the power of the actor, playwright and audience in the theatrical process.

In addition, the production may be performed to an audience of middle and high school students, and is expected to tour to various performance spaces across Providence.
