Subject:        Feathers

I'm back from Ann Arbor where I enjoyed the RSC's new attempt at the
first tetralogy, despite a few reservations.  There is a motif in the
productions I don't understand.  Red and white feathers, corresponding
to the colour of the roses, appear from time to time, usually descending
from the ceiling, though not always.

I am puzzled by their meaning.  I looked for a pattern to their use to
explain them, but it eluded me.  Has anyone who has seen the show
figured it out, or heard someone involved in the productions comment on
the feathers?
