Thrill of Love – Set Design Research

I have been researching some initial ideas for the atmosphere and setting of the play, and trying to get a feel for 1950s London. In my head I have images of ‘Chicago’ and that cabaret style, however I know this is a completely different time and location, therefore I wanted to conduct some further research so my ideas would be more appropriate for the play. As it is based on a true story, it is so important to be accurate in everything, from costume and makeup, to set and props. Here are some images, some real and some staged, from the 50s to give me a starting point.
