Some of My Theatrical Set & Lighting Designs

A terribly incomplete collection and resume of some of my theatre work back in the 80s & 90s

The designs depicted done for the Coyote Theatre Company represent just a small fraction of the body of my work in the theatre. Please check back as more work is added to this part of the portfolio -J. Jerrald Hayes

Set and Lighting Design for the Coyote Theatre Production of Italian American Reconciliation.

The now defunct Coyote Theatre Company was a small professional Actor’s Equity Westchester County based company that my friend Jim Shankman setup modeled after Joe Brancato and Andrew Horn’s Penguin Rep across the Hudson in Stony Point NY (Rockland County). One of the shows I did with Coyote that I was pretty proud of was Italian American Reconciliation  a play by John Patrick Shanley the author of the critically acclaimed film Moonstruck. Alvin Klien reviewed our production for the New York Times: Coyote Stages ‘Italian American Reconciliation’.

After first reading the play and doing a little research and then meeting with the director I sat in the back of the theatre where it was going to be produced (The Chappaqua Library Theatre) and drew a concept sketch of the set as I envisioned it. Drawing in perspective was a skill that came naturally to me and  really took off when I was in school for Theatre Design & Technology at SUNY Purchase, The second photo is the set design as it was actualized…
