Tree of wedding dresses
Represents the love and idleness flower (the pansy), which possesses the magic love potion. The tree is made out of wedding dresses from all different centuries since the play was first performed. This represents that this search for marital bliss has stood the test of time throughout the different generations.
The beds that are a constant element of the set design are drawn from the importance of the Elizabethan wedding bed.
The costumes consist of a fusion of Elizabethan styles right through to modern outfits. This too is designed to symbolise that the search for love has travelled throughout the generations. It respects the idea that previous generations have walked the path of love complications before.
