When I have a play in production, I tend to become fixated on two elements: the scene change music, which can NOT be female vocalists earnestly playing guitars and singing about strawberries which for some reason, some sound designers like to do with any play written by a woman, and two, the poster, which you really don’t want to get wrong, as you must look at it for months. It must be subtle but clear, and grab you without shouting. All of this to say, I am so far completely obsessed with The Cake’s production sound design AND poster.
It’s soft but strong. Inviting but subversive. There’s a cake on it being cut by WORDS. PERFECT. POSTER.
