I'd be grateful if you could help me with this.
For the set for Jerusalem, I seem to remember being able to see a brick wall behind the caravan at the back of the set when I saw the play at the Apollo. I've read this somewhere else as well and also that they saw a fire escape on the brick wall too, but they seemed to think that it was part of the set as if the caravan was nearby a building.
Was this the case or was it the back wall of the theatre. I realise that this most likely was intentional for it be seen behind the (very tall) trees but I wonder if any of you could confirm/ reiterate this?
Thanks.

Back wall of the theatre- intentional, conscious it was a play etc- as was the "English Stage Company" on the proc arch.

Was suspecting this - very glad to hear, thank-you.
Do you know where there might be a review/ article/ interview to confirm this - for referencing purposes?

The playtext mentions the "English Stage Company" at the beginning, but not the wall. Wouldn't know where to look.... sorry.

The VocalEyes description for the visually impaired stated that the wall and fire escape were part of a building in the wood which the caravan "seemed" to be parked close to, on concrete "as if this area was once part of the building."

Click-open the Jerusalem - Introduction Word Doc on this webpage.

I don't know who's right - VocalEyes or Pharaoh's number 2 - but it does make sense that Rooster would permanently site his caravan on an existing concrete floor in the shelter of the remains of a building. I guess we need to know who briefed both of our two sources.
