"This thesis describes a naturalistic lighting design for Indian Summer, a play by Gregory S. Moss. The narrative covers how the script analysis led to naturalism being chosen as the representation for the play, how the color palette was selected using Rothko designs and nature photographs, and the how the lighting design was executed from a technical perspective. A discussion is held about how the lighting design was influenced by the scenery, costumes, and staging. Finally, some of the challenges of the design and execution are examined, and comments made as to lessons learned."
