“A practical guide to making scenery for the stage; from basic design and construction through to effective control of scenery in performance.  Planning and preparation come first – how to get the best out of different stage layouts, using models and scale drawings, and guidance on organising the construction work.  The following section on building and assembling the set covers flats, ground row, flies and curtains, cyclorama, backdrops, rostra, trucks, and wagons, and includes advice on space saving devices.  The third part of the book describes the painting and decoration of scenery, including discussion of colour, lighting, and special effects.  The final section draws all these topics together in the context of more than twenty typical set design projects, placing particular emphasis on the handling of scenery and set changes in front of a live audience.”
