Scenic Designer Joseph Tilford Communicates Through Design

by Kathy Eddy

For the well-reviewed production of Karen Zacarías' Native Gardens, Scenic Designer Joseph Tilford has to communicate a lot of information to the audience through his design as he explains his considerations and approach to this very scenic driven production. Native Gardens is a co-production and had its world premiere in January 2016 at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. It is currently concluding its run at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and will next play at Washington, D.C.’s Arena Stage from September 15 – October 22.
