Okay, imagine a large-ish stage. Most of the action occurs center stage where the stage remains the same throughout, but at the far left and far right visible areas of the stage are two slightly elevated platforms, but stationary*, that serve as ancillary stages as needed. They’re usually bare but may have a chair or prop or backdrop as needed. (Example: suppose the play is Hamlet- the center stage may remain the throne room of Elsinore Castle for the entire performance but the side stages may change from the graveyard to the battlement to just completely bare for the 2Bon2B soliloquy.)
Anybody know if there is a word for these little ancillary stages are called other than sidestages?
Thanks for any info or suggestions.
*Stationary meaning that they are there throughout the performance [they’re not embossed perfumed letterhead
