Inset right: Another view of Evelyn Poole's entrance hallway on B Stage. by Jonathan McKinstry, Production Designer Everything comes from the script. There are obvious mechanics to a set: door on the right, window on the left. Beyond that, I seek to understand the nuances of the characters so I can design the physical environments they might have created for themselves. I want to believe Dr. Frankenstein could have built his monsters in the workroom I see on screen, or that Sir Malcolm really lives in the home I (he?) created. Most importantly, I want to create sets that are believable, that feel real and appropriate for the characters. PENNY DREADFUL
