 A conscious decision was made to keep the set minimal to allow for an easy transition between the separate places the play is set in: Iraq and South East England.

A particularly interesting challenge was the use of film footage in the show. The different requirements of a film set to a theatre set made designing it an exciting task and tied in nicely with my background in film set design. The task at hand was to design an environment which imitated an army base tent in Iraq in the early 2000s. The filmed scenes functioned as video diary of a young soldier who is communicating with his girlfriend via video messages.
