This project for THAR 130 course, Intro to Lights, Sets, Costume, aims to set design for J.M. Synge's Riders to the Sea. Creative design is especially important for this play because Synge as a playwright was so focused on capturing the essence, and daily living and struggles of the people of the Aran Islands, and set design in particular is necessary to create the aura of the setting and the lives these people lived. The design concept and style for this project focuses on minimalist realism and historical relevance.


Eric Baratta's THAR 130 class was held in the Collaborative Classroom in Van Pelt Library.
