Set Design to Bus Stop

  1. 1. Set Design by Marta Epomba
  2. 2. Intro to Set Design • The set designer is responsible for collaborating with the director and other members of the production team, such as lights and costumes, to create an environment for the production and then communicating the details of this environment to the audience.
  3. 3. Set Pieces and Design for Bus Stop • In Bus Stop, by William Inge, the characters are trapped in a diner outside of Kansas City, Missouri during a snowstorm. The entirety of the action takes place in this diner. The diner should be small and intimate, with a low ceiling, one door, and a sizeable window that overlooks the titular bus stop. The interior should have one bar with some stools, and a few tables with chairs. A simple staircase leading up to Grace’s apartment should be unobtrusively off to the side.
  4. 4. Mood and Style • Bus Stop occurs in 1955; therefore, the set should have a distinct ‘50s feel. But it is a small and unassuming diner; not big and colorful like the Grease teen hangout, but muted, with more wood finishing and dull red accents. It should look like it caters to an older crowd.
