The simple sets by Elizabeth Jarrett are impressive and inventive considering what must have been the limited budget of the small new company. The elaborate French boudoir of The Maids is surprisingly convincing with its checkerboard floors and period furniture. Simple black ropes hung from the ceiling do double duty in the shows, gathered together and hung to one side they suggest the elegant parted curtains of a French household and allowed to hang straight down they suggest the bars of a cell.
