This April, William and Mary Theatre will present a production of Clybourne Park. The play takes place in a single house across fifty years, and the relationships of the people to the house serve as vehicles for various social concerns, past and present. Race is the dominant concern throughout the play, but concerns over gender roles also play throughout the show and are a part of how the characters relate to the house. Because of how interwoven gender is with the space of the play, examining how spaces become gendered creates interesting possibilities for the design of the show. This thesis seeks to explore how concepts of gendered space can inform scenic design choices in William and Mary Theatre's upcoming production of Clybourne Park.
