Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to present in three parts the design production of Jean Genet’s The Balcony. The thesis is divided into three parts: (l) Part I, the playwright, the play, and the design approach, (2) Part II, the technical production, and (3) Part III, an analysis. Part I deals with the historical and stylistic considerations influencing the design approach and a description of the design approach to setting, costumes and makeup, and lighting. Part II, largely illustrative, contains renderings, production photographs, and working plots for sets, costumes, and lighting. Part III discusses the weaknesses of the set, costumes, and lighting as part of the total visual design.
