The Red Barn Set Design: Nicole Theodore

This set is designed to sit as an isolated unit on stage so external scenes, for example the blizzard, can take place around it. The main structure transitions into a second dwelling through a memory. The accompanying drawings show the process of the scene breakdown and the formulation of ideas. Working in the model box moves the ideas from the page into a three-dimensional, functional design. The white card model is the preliminary design made to scale at 1:25. It is a technical model that has a trap door leading to a “cellar” below the stage, a rear staircase leading to a bathroom that belongs to the second dwelling upstairs and a front door positioned to be accessed from backstage. There is a second functioning door in the house that belongs to the primary dwelling and is used to imply this is one room in a larger house.
