"'Night, Mother", Poster for Soulpepper Theatre
JUNE 20, 2008
This is part of the series of posters I've done for Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto. The performance runs through this week.
Acrylic and oil-based ink on bark paper. 15" x 15"
'Night Mother is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Drama Desk, and Four Tony Awards, and deals with the difficult relationship between a mother and daughter. It takes place during one sitting as the mother and daughter discuss their life, the mother knits, and the daughter threatens suicide. I wanted to work with a red knitting thread in some way to hint at the idea of the family's complicated and violent story unraveling before the audience.
Final poster, 18" x 24", offset litho
