Sound Design: Craig Flanagin 

In a corridor haunted by wronged maidservants, a stable boy considers the ways he is becoming bad because of the things his new job asks him to do. As a progression of rakes, profligates and libertines drink more liqueurs and vomit in the decorative urns, one rake reflects on his dawning consciousness that his actions harm others. He tells the audience: "I want to let you know that none of this is my fault. Not exactly. It’s not like I want to do these things. It’s just, I don’t know, I do them?"
