Acting Production

Simple Set Success: Agatha Rex

Agatha Rex
Written by Lindsay Price

Sometimes a picture really can speak a thousand words. In this production of Agatha Rex by Lindsay Price, the students at Northwestern High School in West Salem, Ohio showed how interesting stage pictures can be created with simple set pieces. Under the direction of Elizabeth Crabtree, the team used simple risers and cubes for their set, along with utilizing lighting to achieve a great effect.

Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus (Sophocles’ Antigone) into a fantastic ensemble opportunity. Great play, great pictures, great production!

Great job, Northwestern High School!
