A play would be nothing without the set. Techies worked hard to prepare the background using stencils and paint.

The end result of the set was gorgeous making the living room of an obsessive gardener come to life.

All things must come to an end, sadly when the lights come on the fantasy of being a suburban mom in the 80s comes to an end. The actors did an amazing job with this show. This might have been the last production from mercy’s theater department for this school year but it will be one to remember.
