Tiger Tally is a serious and intense play that is based on the historical story of Prince Xinling of Wei stealing the tiger tally to save ally Kingdom of Zhao. To go with the serious nature of the play, most parts of the show was lit in tones of blue. The only exceptions are during the opening scene set in the Imperial court of the Kingdom of Wei and the warring scene between the Kingdom of Qin and Kingdom of Zhao, whereby the stage was washed golden amber to elevate the ambience.
