"We wanted to show the film version of it on stage in a way, and the main way in which we framed that sort of idea was to present it with a sliding shutter, a camera shutter."
Max Jones was the set and costume designer on Phillip Breen's revival production of Sam Shepard's True West.
Jones shares his experience of having a multifaceted role, explains how to identify practical design solutions from the original text, and details how the American road movie genre inspired him to produce a filmic aesthetic within a theatre space.
