"Clare designs scenery for plays and productions" "The scenery was very detailed and so was greatly admired by the people watching the show" "The play was terrible - the scenery was better than the acting!" "I like being a passenger in a car rather than the driver, because it allows me to look at the scenery in more detail as we drive"
Scenery is the effects that a person gives to a plaY for example costumes, background, lighting, sounds, and props.
Scenery is used to set the scene, mood and tone of a play. For example, a scene set in a garden may have a scenery involving trees and plants.
The set is the scenery: the depiction of the physical location of the play.
I believe it is called the backdrop.

It is both singular and plural. Scenery can refer to one large scene. It can also refer to a collection of scenes, such as the backdrops used in a play.
They are used as a setting for a theater production. They are accessories on a stage that represent the location of a scene. When in a play, if a scene takes place in a forest, you cannot bring an actual forest to a stage or perform the play in an actual forest, so a backdrop (which is a painting) of the forest will be the scenery for that scene in the play.
