In designing "Execution of Justice," the intention was to reveal how a law system worked against a society it represents and how a single courtroom decision can dissolve the bonds of such society. The repercussions of this decision were articulated scenically by bringing together mixed elements of style in the courtroom as well as symbolic landmarks that help expose the confusion and frustration the people of the city experienced. The stage scenery was composed of the scale replica of the Golden Gate Bridge and a courtroom. The bridge on stage suggested connection with the city and its inhabitants who were shown struggling with the moral and political issues the case precipitated throughout the play. The courtroom served as an enclosed space wherein the imperfect and fallible legal system took action, systematically manipulating the people's view in order to serve its own good. In addition, images were projected serving as a historical and landscape background, others as evidence in the legal case.
