The University of Redlands had selected Proof to be the Spring 2020 production after the cancelation of a previous production. I was the Production Designer on the project and has given a very quick deadlines. I went from the initial designs to the completed package in about two weeks. The show was scheduled to be performed in late March. With scenic fabrication not completed and no technical rehearsals, the show had only one unplanned performance on March 16th.

Initial concept and layout sketches exploring how to implement a theater in the round show.
This was the first theater in the round production at the University of Redlands. I was focused on making sure every seat would be given an equal experience and creating a space that was very environmental. The house features some abstraction with the wall that is crumbling away. This helped not having a monolithic wall towering over the space and taking too much visual attention from the porch where the majority of the play takes place. The audience would enter the set from the bottom right corner in the image above, an arbor that helped create a framed reveal of the space was added later in the design process.
The set as it was still being fabricated when the impromptu performance on March 16th took place.
