Where does this comedy about domestic violence fit into the world?  Because the subject is so emotionally volatile, the end result is a realistic, brutally honest set to show the horrors of Nan's life, with comedy being intermediately overlaid on top of that foundation with props, sound, costumes, and projections.  The projections are partially used to create supertitles, writing Nan's story as she creates her own script.  The side screens are used in conjunction with the lighting and sound to create environments outside of the house for flashback and flash-forward scenes. Using these techniques, subject of domestic violence lets the play have fun with Nan's humorous retribution throughout the show.
