Working was produced
on the University of Denver Theatre Departments proscenium stage.For
this production audience risers were built on stage. They were arranged
to produce a 20' by 18' arena stage. Batten trim height was 18'
The Working set consisted of a floor of masonite which
was "dirtied" with an irregular wash of a blue glaze.
Very large spike marks were then painted in different colors
coded to the different scenes.
The lighting was based on 6 basic lighting areas. Each area was
lit 5 instruments (Flame, R18; Middle Rose, R44; Light Lavender,
R52; Light Steel Blue, R64; and a toplight gelled in Pale Amber
Gold, R9). The entire space was then washed with 18 instruments
gelled in the three primaries. Numerous specials with gobos were
used for each significant mood or location change.
