The following thesis will provide a detailed account of the process by which Redux, a devised play produced by The Radical Buffoons, was created. I will explain how I developed various original characters as well as the acting choices I made along the way. I will shed light on the social climate that inspired this piece and the historical implications that influenced our work. Redux was performed on January 28th, 30th, 31st, and February 4th, 6th, and 7th of 2022 at The Hotel Peter Paul in New Orleans, Louisiana.
