The story thus far...
Grace and Simon, two teenage tearaways, have discovered a passage to Reality in the basement of The tré (a tiny theatre in their miniscule town of Otterstow). Unfortunately, they have accidentally trapped themselves and cannot return, although they don't seem to be in any hurry to do so.
Ignatius (the mayor of Otterstow) suspects this is the case and has enlisted the aid of the parents; Slide, Sandra, Pete and Gina. None of the adults have figured out how to open the passage, which seems to involve a mysterious box that they can't open.
What's going on right now:
Grace and Simon are exploring the Rialto, which is the theatre on the other side of the passage.
They've finished dinner (and did the washing up). Now they're exploring the bathroom which has a glass booth.
About the page...
So, what is this large, mysterious booth. As if you didn't know.
The text from the kitchen scene sort of bled into this one, but it was kind of mundane stuff (more of teenagers cleaning up after themselves - pft!). I also didn't feel the need to illustrate a toilet. Some of you might be eating while reading this, so...
I had to model the booth and the tub for this, along with all of the wainscotting, baseboards and chairguards. Goodness, I'm exhausted.

"Yes," said Simon. "It's not quite like home. But we're not exactly at home and we don't have a lot of options."
They ate in silence. When they had finished, Grace suggested they explore the rest of the building.
After cleaning up after themselves, they entered the bathroom.
"I can guess what that's for," Grace said, pointing to the toilet, "although it doesn't look quite like what we use for raising our tails at home. And those're obvious," she said, indicating the basin and the bath. "But what's that?" she asked, pointing at what appeared to be some sort of booth that was, apart from some minor hardware, made almost entirely of glass. "Looks like a phone box, without the phone in."
