"The action plays out in the long, narrow space of the church aisle, with a stage at each end... It separates the cast during times of war, but also makes the most of the beautiful, historic stone space, allowing the audience to imagine the characters in a castle setting... During the battles, the cast emerge from all sides, surrounding the audience... It’s a simple, yet inspired choice."
