On the right of the stage is LEOís flat: a modern sofa with a telephone on a coffee-table before it, and a large map on the wall behind.The map is made by joining together four ordnance survey maps.It is dotted with red flags on little pins and one isolated black flag on a brown patch near the centre.

Between the two is ELLAís room: a stool with a telephone on it.
