The audience are invited to observe life on deck and be intrigued with the unidentified cargo. The atmospheric staging suits the sinister mood for what is about to happen.
The lighting and smoke creates this suspense with the mysterious deaths on board. The lighting and soundscapes serve chillingly the vampire's existence on ship with great use of vampire images, red lighting that represents blood and dimness which is appropriate for this telling of this dark tale.
Certainly a production remembered for its stage effects, the live music and good use of metaphoric language in the text and songs. An imaginative approach for telling a dark tale which is something Proper Job takes pride in with their productions.
