Designer Zoe Spurr Brings Magic to Life for Beginners

Stage Directions

Oversized flowers bloom, waiflike stalactites fly, and the leaded-weight of “adult” concerns lifts like the morning mist in the final third of Beginners.  A play-within-a-play featuring 4-10-year-olds, this memorable passage opens a window into the boundless and colorful imaginative powers of childhood. Adding impact to this wondrous play, and making its fantastical characters come to life even more vividly during a production at London’s Unicorn Theatre, is the rich assortment of colors created by Zoe Spurr. Here's a 360-degree video tour of The Unicorn Theatre: {youtube}v=u3qdQHXc0TQ{/youtube}
