From the beginning this who was very much an ensemble piece - many actors never left the stage (including Christopher) so accessories were added for the various characters each member portrayed and they were all utilizing the same blue/gray/purple color palette. We also wanted the costumes to reflect that the telling of the story comes from Christopher's imagination, so the clothing reflects mostly quiet colors and linear patterns, with the exception of Siobhan as she is outside of Christopher's story and represents the "real life" timeline.
