Sean Fanning, also a Resident Artist, has designed a series of marvelous sets based on a stationary background of artfully arranged doors, fences, windows, and siding, against which he places the setting of the particular play, a table for Table Manners, a living room for Living Together, and a garden for Round and Round The Garden. The sets are complimented by the lighting design by Michelle Caron, the costume designs of Jeanne Reith, and the sound design of George Ye.
I had originally intended to see only one of the plays but ended up going back two more times, including separate trips from Los Angeles, to see the rest of the plays. All this takes place in the lovely small but comfortable theatre in Old Town San Diego.The Norman Conquests is a triumph that can compete with anything coming from La Jolla and The Old Globe. This is one of the best theatrical experiences I have had in Southern California. Bravo!! The Norman Conquests reigns supreme at Old Town Theatre until Nov 7th.
