Through associations and personal experiences, I settled on the overarching concept that, "The road is closed," for the stage design of As You Like It. Pulling from my surroundings as inspiration, I created a realistic road on the Studio Theatre's stage using found and borrowed objects to enhance the road's authenticity. With a blocked road as a metaphor for the characters' inner journeys to overcome their own prejudices and achieve an enlightened way of thinking, the audience joined the ensemble on their path of self-examination and discovery.
