Production: God of Carnage
Location: Theatre Tallahassee
Director: Anthony Mowad
Set Design: Melissa Findley
Lighting Design: Thomas Mahaffey
Probably one of my favorite set designs to date. Challenges with this particular set -- it's supposed to be minimalistic, and the director wanted to create a sense of balance between the two arguing couples in the play. He also wanted it to have the feeling of a cave.
The room was meant to feel as though it was Veronica's show piece. It brings in a lot of the character's personality. While it has a very modern feel, I also used very primitive elements (lots of wood and stonework) that peek through the thin veneer of civilization. The fireplace (which the character has converted into a bookcase) almost evokes a pagan shrine. The four paintings above the fireplace are "cave style" drawings of the four main characters.
