Good Woman of Setzuan

Poster done for the University of Alberta's Studio Theatre 2010 season. The poster was created in close collaboration with the play's director. It looked at different elements of the mood and feel of the play and the Bretchian concepts presented. The poster characters were hand drawn in illustrator.

The illustration for The Good Woman of Setzuan was based on two main principles. First, the play itself presented the idea of the three ominous gods with a constant presence in the world. This is shown through the looming over an otherworldly orb. The world in which the play and characters existed in was represented by the orb and placement of the title and text. The second main principle of the poster was the idea of the fourth wall and Brechtian theatre. The gods were positioned in and out of the frame to play with the idea of space and where the figures existed.
