A Light in the Window:

This is a horror play with shadows I conceptualized, adapted and directed. I adapted three of my favorite horror stories, "Specialty of the House" "The Yellow Wallpaper" & "It Had to Be Murder" (the short story "Rear Window" was based on) to be told as first person accounts.  Behind the storytellers was a large shadow screen I built that we used in slightly different ways for each story. For instance, for the last story, "It Had To Be Murder" we used the screen as the window. At the climax all the lights went out and when they came back on the man who'd only been viewed in shadow was strangling our storyteller (as seen below).
