To maximize the limited space and functions of a bishopric courtyard, he designed and set up an outdoor stage. By drawing the background on a smaller scale to exaggerate perspective, he provided an effect to make the actors appear larger. Though the painting on the bottom of the grayish-green drop curtain was covered by the set, it would be shown in between scenes to provide a certain flow to give the entire play unity. A difference between day and night was created by changing positions of suspended items and lighting for the drop curtain. For this design, A.M.Cassandre was awarded a « Legion d’Honneur » medal and established his reputation as a stage designer.
