Reality Theatre

Set Designer

Reality and fantasy blur for a woman playing a spoon in Beauty and the Beast. A man reconsiders a contract signed in blood. And the world wide web disappears into thin air. Reality Theatre is a fast moving collection of short, interwoven plays that explore our anxieties about change, the acceleration of technology, and maintaining human relationships in a world quickly becoming less human.

‘The most successful humour comes from these off-the-wall concepts, and the in-jokes about self-absorbed actors also played well to the opening-night crowd. The set, with its multiple columns in perspective, adds to the off-kilter feeling.’
