An important piece of any theatrical production is the scenic design. My thesis project follows my process through the research and design process used to create my own set design for Our Town by Thornton Wilder. I look at the text of the script as well as the background of Thornton Wilder’s ideas for the play. I explore other productions’ choices and what worked or did not work for them. By using my own analysis of the script and research on design elements, I produce an original set design for Our Town including a ground plan and renderings of the set. This project was due to be realized as part of the 2020-21 production season of Georgia Southern Theatre, but due to COVID-19 the production was postponed.
