There is no reason why an excellent production should not be based on just the few basic essential pieces of furniture required by the script - doorways, Todd's chair, tables and chairs for the Gin Palace, a few blocks to represent cellar walls and the exploding pie machine. If more elaborate facilities are available then there are opportunities to create full sets - particularly useful for the climax of the Gin Palace scene and for the gruesome cellar in which most of Act Two takes place.
