Up until this point our sets had been composed of whatever furniture we could borrow from La Val's. In comes Michael Frassinelli with his old orange VW van filled with crap he'd picked up off the side of the road. He's not a set designer; he is our very own McGiver who spits and paints and kicks things into place until suddenly you have this beautiful world to play in. Oh, and the play itself? I learned that directors shouldn't direct plays if they are in them.
