Abstract (Summary)

The scenic design for By the Bog of Cats, a University Players production in Spring 2014, created the world of the bog by utilizing the visual language of a crash site coupled with the feeling (and furnishings) of a home. As a way to connect to the story, personal experience was used. To create the visual language of the bog, crash sites were studied. Using old furniture and aged tree branches that were found on the side of the road, or in alleys, the set was aged naturally. Through collaboration between all designers and the director, the production of By the Bog of Cats was a success in bringing the audience into the crash site where the story takes place.
