A scrap paper set-design

Alicia Sweetman designed the set for Rossa by Roger Mc Hugh. It is obvious it is at the time of the Emergency in Ireland, during World War II, because Alicia Sweetman used scrap paper for her presentation drawing. The design is markedly progressive for the time in its use of Mediterranean colours. This is significant because the play itself was a historical look at the political life of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa.
