This play was one of my favorites ever to design! This was an amazing cast that put on a hilarious show. June in Georgia is hot, hot, hot, so I did my best to make the costumes lightweight but still in Renaissance “style”.

Well, I agreed to sign on for this show knowing it was right around my due date. Luckily, I got the bulk of everything done before the baby, and superstar costumer Jennie tied up the loose ends and carried the wardrobe through the week of shows. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters and designing period 30’s pieces for them and took Amanda’s dinner dress back to a tea dress of the late 1910’s/20’s which she would have stashed away from her “entertaining” days… I tried to re-style clothing as much as possible with only the pink Laura dinner dress having to be made from scratch, from my imagination, actually, as I could not find a pattern of what I was envisioning.
