  • I was very excited to work with people—two playwright-producers—who love props as much as I do. Boy do these men love props, and sparely outfitted dark theaters, and dancing, as it turns out. 

    I wanted their website to celebrate using what was at hand in the same ham-handed, yet elegant, way they use props in their plays. Everything should be the same size, and should be treated as if a physical thing. Play titles appear as giant placards with giant type and that same type is reused for all the site's buttons. The lot of it all is put into a black box to be shuffled about and added to as the playwrights make more plays and use old props in new ways. In collaboration with Linked by Air
