"Frank Blackmore’s creation is a work of beauty. It is both practical and symbolic . .... The gravestones of the cemetery are brought front and center and are a constant visual reminder of what the women are all obsessed with. The top of the set has a delicious presentation of branches which both set the season and provide metaphorical visions of the show’s themes."
