In order to design the costumes for the depression-era play Waiting for Lefty: Seeing Red I searched for connections between contemporary life and that of the time period. People from both times have strived for the American Dream even as it gets further out of reach and have dealt with the realities of economic turmoil. I turned to the 1930s photography of Dorothea Lange and Everett W. Kuntz to research what everyday, working class people who were experiencing these difficulties would have worn. These subtly powerful photos helped me connect the characters to the time and the audience to the play.
