The Provincetown Plays: SIUC, 1998

When we produced the The Provincetown Plays at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale it was part of my responsibility to unify the evening and the three directors interpretations through the design. Since the reason we chose these plays was to teach the students about the birth of modern American drama, I chose to ground my design in the "New Stagecraft" of Robert Edmond Jones. I reduced the design elements of each set to simple architecture elements and unpainted wood surfaces. This is the 1/4" white model for The Long Voyage Home.
