The scenic design created by Luke Cantarella to be built in our Lester Hamburg Studio Theatre features a wall of light-boxes covered in an abstracted image of sky and field. The light-boxes are illuminated from behind and can move to provide a wide range of backdrops for the play’s multiple locations. The play begins in an open field with two NTSB agents (plane crash investigators) exploring the aftermath of a crash. Soon the action moves to a bar, hotel room, and hospital. In the model below you can get a sense of how the light-boxes work to create a compelling backdrop for not only the exterior scenes but the interior ones as well.
