The Pitmen Painters
American Stage Theatre Company, 2016

This play tells the story of a group of British coal miners who discover and begin to create art: the Ashington Group. The lighting for the play featured compositions and colors derived from the miner’s paintings, and was tailored to express time of day and location on the unit set.


The lighting and projections designs for this production were jointly recognized by Theatre Tampa Bay for

Outstanding Lighting Design in 2016.

To see more about how I developed the lighting design for this production, please see the process page for the show.
