Wait Until Dark

Category: Set Design

Design Statement

"Wait Until Dark's" scenic environment involves the use of a dark/sinister environment [exaggerated wall heights] as a metaphor for the blindness of the central character, Suzy, as she does battle with criminals in New York City. The most frightening thing that could possibly happen to the protagonist is to have her safe space, her home, invaded. This is exactly what happens in the play. The director and I created a number of spaces in the setting that Suzy could manipulate in order to take control over her perpetrators as they attempt to murder her. Her familiarity with her environment is her saving grace. The colorless, grey walls of the apartment are a reference to the blindness of the central character. Color in the design comes from the costumes, indicating characteristics of each individual personality on stage.
