The series is an opportunity for directors to present lesser-known or smaller works that might not be suited to a full-scale production. The emphasis is on the play and the acting, not costumes, props or special effects. The shows are presented with the audience sitting on the stage, right in the middle of the action, allowing a ringside view as the story unfolds around them.
