Present Laughter, November 2017


Present Laughter, directed by Angie Langfield and designed by Norman Coates at the Embassy Theatre, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, November and December 2017

Present Laughter was the first public production of my second year at university. I was part of the scenic art team, working with five others to realise the design. I helped to paint all of the set elements in part, and took on two personal projects; repairing and finishing a vintage mirror and painting an Art Deco mock-Grecian vase.

The floor had a dark wood parquet effect finish and a painted floor cloth based off an Art Deco design. The walls had a light spray finish, and the banister included some gilding.
