ABOUT

Faces in the Crowd reunites Red Sky Morning director Sam Strong with actors David Whiteley and Sarah Sutherland. I was the sound designer for this Red Stitch Actors Theatre production of the play.

 

The scarifying emotional terrain is also leavened by incidental comedy. Sound and set design wryly capture the claustrophobia of high-density urban living.

Filing cabinets are substituted for furniture. Depeche Mode played full-bore upstairs, a neighbour’s bathroom renovations, and the traffic noise outside all form a comic soundtrack to the fumbling and mechanical attempts at sex onstage.
