Create a scenic design for a play we’ve discussed in class, and write a short reflection describing your choices.


Choose one of the theatre spaces described in The Creative Spirit chp 6 The Designers and in class lecture:

  • Proscenium
  • Thrust
  • Arena
  • Traverse 
  • Black Box

Using this space, come up with a basic scenic design for one of the plays we have read this term (Joe Turner’s Come and Gone, And the Soul Shall Dance, Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, Water by the Spoonful), or one of the plays discussed in the book (e.g., Medea, The Seagull, Endgame, The Island, etc.).

You can design according to the conventions of Realism or a kind of Theatricalism.

Take account of the important elements of the space. What obstacles do you face? What elements or areas of the space present unique design opportunities? Be sure to consider where the audience will be; how furniture and scenic elements will affect the audience’s view of the playing area; what elements would help create the world of the play; what elements would highlight the mood and/or themes of the play.

Draw, paint, or use a computer make a picture or diagram of your design, and write a 1 1/2 – 2 page reflection detailing your choices.
