David Button asked Seger to come up with a versatile
attic to serve as the memory space for Jo March, the
Little Women sister and author (Louisa May Alcott).  He
devised an open structure with outlines of a wall, roof and
dormer windows to allow the lighting to work its magic.  
Civil War era sepia photographs complete the scene.  
Button and Seger combined on the decor.
The action often spilled
onto the thrust for house
and street scenes.
The need to burn something in a
fireplace required the creation of a
believable stove.
Seger first extended the scenery on
the walls of the theatre last year
during the summer productions.  
With the Clear Space thrust stage
almost demanding something
behind the action, he serves the
storytelling with images -- this time
including Civil War era photographs
and portraits of Louisa May Alcott.
The audience-right
view, including a
young Louisa May,
gargoyles from Paris,
a married couple and
the Alcott home.

Dormer windows dominate the attic
and give a focus to the array of
memory items.  The four dolls below
the window seat represent the four
March sisters.
