Dear Sallie Cooper,
 
I saw a production of M for M with a very bare stage and three large video
screens at the back of the stage, kind of wrapping around the action, on which
they flashed past scnes of the action (pre-filmed of course) as well as lines
of the play (one at a time) and symbols relating to the action (e.g. the
executioner's axe, a burning heart). The overall impression was one of the
actors dwindling away to nothing in front of the screens, and finding oneself
frustrated by the double focus, especially if the images on the screen were
moving, or if the images were different on each screen. In short, not terribly
successful. Neither have I been terribly successful in remembering whose
production it was, but I'm sure it played in Melbourne and Sydney as well as
Perth (any eastern states Autralians on the list??).
 
Hope this is at least of some interest
