The play takes place in the room of a huge fan and collector of Star Wars memorabilia which happens to be in the basement of his parents house. I created the room to mingle the main characters obsession with the families necessary storage of Christmas decorations and old clothing. I created a hidden safe that was called for in the script by making a secret door that opened with impressive red light and fog. I detailed the basement with fabric, memorabilia, wood grain, brick in order to give it a lived in feeling reminiscent of the 1970s.

“Within Planet Ant’s small black-box confines Jennifer Maiseloff has created a set which subtly conveys Hannah’s worlds. (Interesting that an agoraphobic has walls filled with paintings of steps and corridors leading to – Where?)”  - Amy J. Parrent,  Encore Michigan
The set design of Dave’s basement, by Jennifer Maiseloff, is very good, right down to the remote-control book-case that opens a few times amidst a cloud of mist and red-light to reveal Dave’s collection of Star Wars merch.
