Using the Dixon Place theater environment as part of the play was visually very exciting.

Sophie Nimmannit, Jan Leslie Harding and Chuja Seo played the ‘Something/Nothing’ characters.

The director Meghan Finn made good use of the audience risers here with Jocelyn Kuritzky.

The ‘Something/Nothings’ gather on the balcony glearing down at the cast on stage.

Jocelyn Kuritsky gets wrapped up in the sofa by the Something/Nothing characters.

The ‘spider’ created wonderfully by the hand of one of the puppeteers.
