HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
Shadow Hour is a courtroom drama about the grayed lines within society. The play uses the jurors as characters within the trial to reenact flashback moments of the events leading to the trial. It was important to the director that the audience left without knowing what really happened. It was intended the audience felt as conflicted about the skewed evidence as the Jury. To support the director’s vision, lighting used dramatic tones of color to dramatize flashback sequences. Lighting treated the trial as the only realistic moment within the play, and the flashback sequences were all altered from different perceptions to create chaos from not knowing what happened.
