This document is a written account of the design and production process for Southern Illinois University Carbondale's production of The Glass Menagerie. The project ran for one weekend in October of 2011. The first chapter consists of a textual and character analysis as well as my own goals for the production. Chapter Two describes the process of designing The Glass Menagerie from just prior to the first design meeting through opening night. The third and final chapter is a self-evaluation of the process and the final product. The text of the document is followed by appendices containing research/inspirational imagery, the lighting plot and relevant paperwork, and production photographs.
