The image presentation was shared with both designers and actors as an alternative to a verbal vision statement.

“…now receiving a handsome and thoughtful (if occasionally too polite) production with Shattered Globe under Roger Smart's direction […with] some stellar performances from the jump.”

“…Smart’s own spare but evocative set.”

Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

“Roger Smart's production and set design, centers on a morbid palm tree grown out of tangled rope. It's an ingeniously simple installation piece made haunting, spectacular even, by the way it looms over every action. Here, not even shade provides relief.”

Dan Jakes, Time Out, Chicago

“Roger Smart’s intelligent revival for Shattered Globe Theatre keeps the plates spinning: None crash. […] A testament to the persuasive power of a flawless ensemble.”

Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Theater Beat
