Abstract

In this thesis, I record and reflect on the process of designing and constructing the scenery for Theater Emory's 2013 production of Macbeth. Sara Culpepper and I (Michael Lewis) served as co-scenic designers for the production. In addition, I served as assistant technical director under Malina Rodriguez, the production's technical director. The production was directed by Clinton Thornton and was performed at the Mary Gray Munroe Theater from November 14-24, 2013.
