Working closely with Max Whit
taker, director for the production.
Miss Growcock designed a model
replica of the stage . setting.
The setting represents a place
on a faraway island, inhabited by
fantastic inhuman creatures.
Miss Growcock also designed
and drew up the masks which
will be used in the play. These are
of a special design which will
make them more mobile than the
usual type of mask.
Although only one setting is used
for the play, its design is such as
to give it a mobility of playing
areas and through the use of lights
it will be possible to vary the
effects of tbe setting, Whjttaker
Miss Growcock has also been
studying the possibility for tbe tise
of a dance movement to project I
the idea of the play. This would
be through the use of -"laminated j
- f .Aa A.r., v -
German dramatist, which has Wd I
much discussed out little used, at
least in this country.
The scale models and the masks
for the pity win have a further
use, Winilaker explained. They

sion movies produced by the
