Costumes

Costume is ultimately up to the Director, but the original concept for this show was for the costume to be modern-day and to give a ‘street look’ for each character. Costume suggestions are provided in the Production Package (see Sample Costumes). They are designed to be easy for each cast member to self-source, as most of it is every-day highstreet wear, found at home, in charity shops or on eBay. Rather than being historically or physically accurate, the costumes are meant to give ‘the feel’ of the character: so animals, for example, wear clothes that might be an animal print waistcoat or skirt, without having to have actual whiskers, ears and tails. It’s a lot cooler for the cast!
