SET and PROP DESIGN
Created by comedy legend Steve Martin and Grammy winner Edie Brickell, Bright Star is a sweeping tale of love and redemption set in the American South during the 1920s and ’40s. This richly emotional story weaves together two chapters in the life of literary editor Alice Murphy; the first, as a young backwoods girl in love with the son of a prominent family; and the second, as mentor to a young soldier just back from the war.
CONCEPT: A central road that serves as a border and transport to the broken memories of Alice’s past amongst the mountains of NC.
