It is essential that all screens are visible for the whole play to create a wall of darkness at the beginning and again at the end. It is best viewed in ‘gallery view’ so that all screens are viewed simultaneously throughout the play. It is advisable to remind your audience not to watch in ‘speaker view’ where the viewer would only see the actor who is speaking at the time, similar to a television close-up of a single speaker and therefore some of the intended effect would be lost.
