Stein and Hermann incorporated multiple stages in their production, including a cramped space at CCC Film Studio, where audience members felt the constriction of the court first hand. They were then led through a green labyrinth and into the Forest of Arden, complete with tall trees, open spaces, grass, and a real pond.
