Set and prop design for a variety of productions.
Finale backdrop for 'A Chorus Line'. The show takes place on a stage that's empty except for a row of mirrors at the back. This production used five rotating prisms upstage, with one set of faces featuring the finale backdrop (see next image).
Original sketch of the set for 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying'. The set featured a platform above a set of elevator doors, a passageway and changeable bulletin board on stage right, and two desks that could wheel on and off to set different scenes. The following images show the set in action, built by Glasgow specialist Jack Murdoch.
'Into The Woods' - the concept was for as much of the set as possible to look as if it was constructed of paper. Milky White the cow was constructed entirely from card, papier mache and coathangers. Simple dowels were placed at her jaw and along her spine (a tube cut into a spiral) to allow puppeteers to move her.
The old tree was built with a light bamboo and chicken wire frame, covered in moulded cardboard and fixed to an MDF rostrum. The wood effect effect was created by painting over old book pages. The reverse of the tree doubled as Rapunzel's tower, made to look as if it was built of book spines (see next image).
'West Side Story' - a custom designed theatre backdrop featuring grafitti related to the gangs featured in the show, the Jets and the Sharks.
