This is set in a fairly large shop, clearly at the turn of the century (early 20th century); this is shown by the d�cor. At one end of the shop (downstage) is a wooden shop-counter with a stall next to it. Sat on the stall is a grey haired man, in about his early 50's dressed in appropriate clothing for the period in time. He is reading a newspaper and has a monocle. There are lots of shelves with folded clothing and racks of dresses. It is clearly the woman's section of the shop. It has stairs, which go downwards, to indicate that it is larger than what the audience can see. There are a few assistants all aged in their twenties and thirties, all women and a few customers. Most of the customers are women except those with their husbands. There are also some screens for changing behind and mirrors. Two women enter the shop chatting. On of them (Mrs. Birling) is aged in her 50's and is wearing a hat, which she places on the hat-stand by the door as she enters. She also had a long coat that she places on the hat-stand and a long grey dress with a cream collar. The other woman (Sheila Birling) is in her early twenties. ...read more.
