A play written by a former New York prison inmate, Miguel Piñero, "Short Eyes" tells the story of a group of prisoners who act out their social hierarchy on the most despised of their group, with tragic consequences.
I designed a lot of depth into this set. There is the foreground in day use room, the middle depth of the hallway behind a transparent scrim and the individual cages going off into the distance. Above, the catwalk and prisoner in a solitary cage looks down on the scene.
