When designing for theater, inspiration, and ideas can come from a wide array of resources and play analysis. This thesis includes the combined method of technical lighting and scenic design for the production of Is God Is, by Aleshea Harris. Presented are approaches to script and character analysis, the incorporation of a diverse range of research, the production process, and a post-production analysis. Also included in this paper are theater design theories, visual references, a light plot, a lighting map, ground plan, and insight behind the design choices.
