‘We have a very good working relationship with the parks department'. explains Greg Smith. the Lyceum's new head at design. as we pick our way around the large piles ol branches that will shortly be making theirstage debut in J.M.Barrie‘s ‘Mary Roseﬁ
The play tells the uncanny story at a young woman who vanishes lrom a Scottish island. then reappears twenty live years later. mysteriously unaged. ln Smith‘s design at the Lyceum huge curtains ol gauze. overrun with mossy greenery will alternately become opaque and transparent as the action shitts trom the iamin home to the eerily atmospheric island.
smith lound himsell thwarted in his original plan to build an Inigo Jones style artilicial pool on stage by too low a budget. Having worked at the national theatres in London and in Cairo. he finds presentlinancial
restraints irksome. ‘lt’s very lrustrating
being poor relations'.
Not that he takes a bleak view of design in Scotland. He was himsell taught by Phillip Prowse. designer and director at the Citizens‘ Theatre in Glasgow. ‘People in Scotland just don‘t realize how lucky they are to have the Citz.’ He doesn‘t. however, welcome any comparisons between the two theatres. ‘What works lorthe Citz. works lorthe Citz. ltwould be silly to
think that we could do the same thing in 1
t5. 2 Edinburgh.‘
What he has achieved at the Lyceum is considerable acclaim with designs lor shows as diverse as Brecht's ‘Mother Courage' and ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. (although he pointedly complains that neglectlul drama critics only mention the designer‘s name when they wish to heap abuse on the set).
Smith trankly enjoys the scope that laerie tales and the supernatural afford the theatrical designer. Grinning. he repeats in sell-justiﬁcation the old maxim. ‘Theatre is the most magical place in the world because there aren't any rules.‘(Helen Davidson).
