BRIAN'S TAKE
 
In this production, there was very little permanent scenery and the actors created the world around them using objects such as trunks, ropes, ladders, boards, and other nautical-themed whozits and whatzits. The magic came from the audience not knowing what the next location would be until we landed there and meant objects were almost constantly moving around the stage. Since many objects looked similar and tracking mattered, we numbered all similar-looking kinds of things. This included 14 ladders the actors manipulated. This numbering system was sent out to the whole production and creative team so we could reference it in meetings and reports. For example, "An actor will use Ladder #1 to climb down from the balcony."
