As Nate is himself a brilliant cartoonist – and the plot hinges on the revelation of his drawing skills – the script features a number of images. These can be achieved via printed images on posters or revealed on sets and props (like lunchboxes, flats or chair backs), via projections, or via other creative means. The premiere production used images on foam core held by actors, along with projections. Lincoln Peirce has drawn custom images which are available for use by post-premiere productions.Although there are many locations specified in the script, the premiere production set design is a non-naturalistic classroom, which the actors rotate to reveal Nate’s garage. The set from Adventure is designed to tour. The authors intend scenes to move fluidly and encourage less set, more rhythm.
