The concept for the design was a contemporary set of a Tudor style home that had been “updated” in the 1980s. Introducing 80’s style wallpaper to Tudor walls was an effective way to represent this visually. The space constraints of the theatre required one of the walls to be shorter than the rest in order to avoid a rotating lighting position. The curved molding on the stair walls kept it low enough while appearing to be an intentional design. There are numerous hidden elements of humor within the set, including large rooster painting, photos of phallic buildings, and several odd caution signs on the ‘back stage’ set.

The 1/4" model has a working turntable and integrated LEDs for front light and window light boxes.
