The following report is on the point of view, conceptualization, and evolution in its final execution of the lighting design by Elisheva S. Siegel for California State University, Long Beach Theatre Department’s 2015 University Player’s production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adly Guirgis. It is submitted in partial fulfillment for completion of the Master of Fine Arts degree in Lighting Design. I believe that the core of this story is about challenging what we know is to be true. Furthermore, to physicalize the break down of these philosophical walls throughout the court proceedings against Judas Iscariot, a grid of severe lighting angles was employed. This grid evolved from extreme isolation to a blur as these black and white lines of moral principles becomes grey. Other visual metaphors include personifying Judas’ despair, a contrasting atmosphere for the Past, and propelling into another dimension during Pilate’s testimony.
