Place: Two meadows connected by a bridge
Time: When it happened
Note: The characters should wear modern dress, bright, youthful overall. We suggest the remainder of the costuming budget be used for an innovative designer to create very individual and evocative half-masks; of course, a cast of children creating their own masks is most exciting, too. Each camp should have a similarity (i.e., goat horns, troll warts, whatever), but each mask should be distinctive.
