By on

The set of a play is more than just the background for the action.  In a black-box space like ours with no curtain, it's the first thing that an audience member knows about the play; it sets the tone and can lay down thematic foundations for the production.  Let's take a deep dive into what the Sister Cities set is telling us.  (SPOILERS ahead on a significant plot point.)

Setting the "Sister Cities" scene: Costumes

By on

Like music, clothing is a good way to subtly clue in an audience about the time frame of a play.  Producer Nicole sat down with Caroline, KWLT's costumes manager and the costumer for Sister Cities, and talked about the process of costuming a show as well as the challenges inherent in a period piece where the period is well within living memory.

Sister Cities

In this dark comedy, four sisters who are as different as the cities they're named after are reunited after the death of their mother, only to find out that the circumstances of her death are not what they seem and may be intolerable. Old wounds are reopened and the sisters reach a crisis point as they must decide if they can stand together, knowing that the alternative is to fall apart completely.
