The following is a set that I co-designed with Rick Frederick and built for the Attic Rep’ s production of “Blackbird.”

The scene is a factory’s filthy break room.

“The Goat or Who is Sylvia”

The following is a set that I designed and built for Attic Rep’s production of “The Goat or Who is Sylvia?”

May 2009

The setting is a living room of a Pritzker Prize winning architect. Upon hearing that her husband (the architect) is having an affair with a goat, the wife begins destroying items in the house. With each action of destruction, perforations open in the set to reveal the artifice of the set. By the final scene, a curtain in the hallway is opened, unveiling mirrors that reflect the back side of the set and the audience. Everything is laid bare.
