A Note From the Designer
The world of The Torrents is inspired by office spaces of the Victorian period and based loosely on the office of the Western Argus newspaper, published in Kalgoorlie between 1894 and 1938. The space is also heavily informed by Oriel Gray’s detailed stage directions. Every box, window and desk are described in the script, even down to the dust of the office space. All these details as well as such intricate character descriptions provide a full and solid foundation for the design.
