"When the curtain rises, it is the scenery that sets the key of the play. A stage setting is not a background; it is an environment. Players act in a setting, not against it.
The designer creates an environment in which all noble emotions are possible. Then he (she) retires. The actor enters. If the designer?s work has been good, it disappears from our consciousness at that moment."

Robert Edmond Jones
from The Dramatic Imagination
