THIS RANDOM WORLD: a play about the myth of serendipity
High Point University
Directed by Doug Brown
COSTUME AND SOUND DESIGN
Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.
CONCEPT: Using color to subtly link the missed connections and reoccuring soundscapes to tie each scene to the last
