Much of the action, at least so far as the young, dead, characters are concerned, takes place off the floor—the pair delivering their dialogue while swinging from ropes or poised on convenient rails.
The idea...is of an aerial playground. And since the characters are both dead—Anne Frank murdered by Nazis in 1943 and the young Albanian Zef shot by gangsters carrying out a vendetta—the concept makes a fascinating kind of sense.... and adds to the suggestion of Anne Frank’s tragic attic and Zek’s bleak homeland setting, interestingly conveyed by Miriam Nabarro’s mixture of rope and scaffolding.
