Costume design, Clothing and dress -- New York (State) -- New York -- 20th century, John Patrick Shanley. Doubt A Parable
Costume design is one of the many creative aspects that brings a theater production together. To become informed on a play's purpose there is much research to be done. In Fall 2016, I designed costumes for Portland State University's production of Doubt: A Parable written by John Patrick Shanley. By researching the religious and political climate of 1960s New York, I created an appropriate costume design for the production. An explanation of my process, how my research was incorporated, and how it influenced my work, will be addressed within this paper. It will then conclude with a reflection of the obstacles overcome and the final product.
