OHIO Theater, NYC, 2006

set design

"The Necklace," the loony new show by the Talking Band theater company, set inside a creepy old house lorded over by the imperious Aunt Fanny (Tina Shepard), lovingly revives an old and beloved form, the serial. Four playwrights (Lisa D'Amour, Paul Zimet, Ellen Maddow and Lizzie Olesker) have written eight episodes, which are performed two at a time.

"An air of mystery is evoked even before the lights dim as audience members have to walk through Anna Kiraly's dark, evocative set with its spooky nooks and crannies to get to their seats."
