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 explained. Miss Growcock has also been studying the possibility for tbe tise of a dance movement to project I the idea of the play.
