There are very few things I'll keep from a production.  Typically the program, a postcard, maybe a picture or two, that's it.  I almost never keep props.  The above is an exception.  When I produced "The Information She Carried," the set was designed by Kley Gilbuena.  Since the play is about a conspiracy theorist, he constructed nearly everything with file cabinets and papers.  It was fantastic! 

One of my favorite things he created was a pillowcase, stuffed with papers, to sit at the head of a file cabinet bed.  The pillowcase was covered with conspiracy theory scrawlings and audience members would want to take a look at it after the show.  Most props don't interest me, but this one I had to keep.
