From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Wilder calls for no scenery at the opening of the play, making the Stage Manager carry on a few basic chairs and tables. When Doc Gibbs walks onstage from a doctor’s call, he mimes his doctor's bag, just as Mrs. Gibbs and Mrs. Webb pantomime cooking. Wilder’s set is simple: no frills and no clutter. The clean stage keeps focus on the characters’ interactions, not on the specifics of Grover’s Corners.
