The setting for Appropriate is the estate of a recently deceased patriarch of a geographically dispersed family. The home is in a state of decay and full of family relics and junk. I styled it based on a plantation style home but with added rot and unkempt sadness. The space of the theatre is a traditional black box which made the heavy action of the play difficult to portray while maintaining the feeling of being surrounded by a collection of disused things. I used the length of the space to create a visually kinetic effect and stacked every available area with the clutter of the families life while balancing it’s availability of use for physical conflict.
