THIS - Play

THIS is a play written by acclaimed writer Melissa James Gibson. I was approached by Vancouver based theatre company Kindred Entertainment who were giving the play it’s Canadian debut. Upon reading the play, I was struck by the fact that all the characters appear to be trapped or stuck in some way in each of their lives. This became the inspiration for the poster, where each actor appears, almost trapped, through the letters of the title. The photographic portraits of each of the actors was taken by myself and we had a great deal of fun coming up with ways to express through the face what each of the characters goes through in the play. This remains one of my favourite projects to date.
