Three characters sit on a platform that is covered in graffiti and are shaping their lips in an “O” shape. They are above a 1960s-style van in which the side is opened and curtains are being pushed aside by a pregnant woman smiling at the camera.
A close-up of a woman who looks wistfully into the distance with her arm raised among other characters who are also raising their arms reverently.
A series of eccentrically costumed characters stand in two lines onstage.
A close-up of a man with a solemn expression and an afro wearing a patchwork vest and a laced-up band around one of his triceps.
A man is slumped against sitting pressed up against a wall covered in red splatters, looking terrified while crossing his arms to clutch them in fear while wearing a jacket patterned with the English flag and dirty jeans.
Characters are grouped together on stage raising their hands reverently. A woman looks up with reverence on her face.
A group of characters are standing on stage, the character furthest into the foreground is silhouetted while a soldier in the mid-ground is under a bright spotlight.
Many characters are grouped in front of or silhouetted behind a sheet hung across stage, engaged in various actions.
A woman pushes aside the curtains on the side of a 1960s van while wearing a gas mask and being spotlighted by green light.
A group of characters onstage stand tall with their right arm raised in a fist while leaning their heads and bodies to the right.
Two men sing with a smile while playing a guitar, one with his eyes shut and the other sitting straight up while looking off into the distance, while a woman sits to the left of the upright man, smiling and looking off into the same direction as the man and holding a daisy.
A group of characters in brightly colored costumes stand onstage looking out toward the audience and holding their right arm outstretched as if reaching for something.
