The biggest challenge with a realistic comedy like Vanya was the balance between tone and practicality. As Sonia and Vanya have lived a miserable and sheltered life, I would have liked to have more clutter. However, the necessity for space for outbursts and physical comedy won out over aesthetic preferences. I relied on color and distressing to convey the message instead.
