The Trip to Bountiful ACT Theatre 2010
The Trip to Bountiful by Horton Foote was produced at ACT Theatre in 2010 with Scenic Design by Matthew Smucker. This set had a very complex wood floor designed to hide various lifts and also allow grass to magically grow out of the floor in one scene. It also had a “star rig” built to simultaneously lower an array of bulbs on cords of various lengths. The rig had to stand on the arena stage’s walking grid and supported a vast traveling frame on four pillars.
