Don Juan Comes Back from the War
Odon von Horvath
Steven C. Kemp
The war-torn world of the play was a world of blocked-out hope. The heavy rags and drapes which framed the space were imposing and stifling to Don Juan as he pursues, in vain, his now-dead fiancé. Only the faint glow of the sky beyond propels him forward.
Scene after scene, this play repeatedly took the audience to new and different locations in rapid succession. The lighting design made this possible by clearly identifying locations and defining architecture.
