Synopsis

The time, the future, after the great light when the old world was lost in one searing moment. The place, the Barrier, where the great letter D stands dividing two groups. The man's group is militant. Its costumes suggest soldiers and it believes the D stands for defense. The woman's group is beautiful. Its pastel gowns suggest peace and parties and they believe the D denotes devotion. Neither group realizes its need of the other but a boy and a girl are attracted to each other. The girl tells the boy of her love of flowers and gives him a little packet of seeds. She tells him, "You have the seeds and someday you will plant them. Remember!" And he replies, "I will remember."

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"We made the D wall in two parts so they were easier to carry through a door by two people ... Likewise, we used boxes for height rather than risers."
