The set design was made by Jenny Kronberg and ended up consisting of simple tarpaulin walls on which different images were projected. The video system Watch Out was used to coordinate the material and tecnician Tobias Stahl conducted the ca 300 different cues. Video projections designed and directed by David Giese. The play toured throughout Sweden in 2006 and 2007 and became a big success.
