The set for Rapture, Blister, Burn has two backyard locations. Albie, BAT’s intrepid set designer, thought it would be fun to have grass in the backyards. (Duh.)
Part of the story of Rapture, Blister, Burn is the question, “Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence?” TICKETS
BAT had a few choices for grass. We could paint the grass. We could use the of pieces of fake turf we had in storage, but they looked very fake. (Artificial grass technology has come a long way in just a few years.)
BAT looked into buying some new artificial grass. Ouch. Our set budget is $600. The grass alone would push BAT over its budget. (Yes, BAT and Albie create miracles on next to nothing.)
Since buying new artificial grass was out of the question, Albie decided to call a few retailers of artificial grass to see if they would give BAT any. The first retailer he called had an office in Burien. Albie had no more than explained what he was looking for when he was told they would give BAT exactly what we needed.
Their stock was in Olympia. Albie could see a long drive ahead of him, but then they said the next day they would be working on a project in South Seattle. They offered to bring the pieces BAT needed up to that job site. They could not have been nicer.
Sure enough, when Albie showed up in South Seattle the artificial grass was there and the crew helped load it into BAT’s truck. Amazing.
This is one more example of what BAT sees over and over again. People are amazing. When asked, they are happy to help BAT. And they help solely out of kindness.
