We designed and fabricated this unique stage set for The Broccolli Project, a student-run theatre troupe at University of Texas Austin’s Plan II Program. In 2011, they presented “An Ordinary String: A Play in Quarters”, an original production written by Plan II senior Hannah Bisewski. Press described it as “a mind-bending play within-a-play-within-a-play, whose stories encompass a wandering theatre troupe, a steampunk turn-of-the-century magician, Orpheus, and an Old World cabaret.” Addressing the challenge of presenting four dramas simultaneously, the stage set allowed actors to move between “quarters” of the set, while audience members saw a unique production depending on their seating choices. Light and affordable, the students assembled and customized the set to suit their needs. Photography by Melanie Scruggs.
