Gate Theatre, Notting Hill

The Emperor Jones by Eugene O’Neill.

A highly political play about power, greed and race, The Emperor Jones provided an exciting opportunity for the three designers to address the expressionistic style of the play, as well as take on the challenges of The Gate’s confined space.

Richard Hudson, the acclaimed designer, designed a production of The Emperor Jones at The Gate in November 2005. The winning Linbury finalist designed The Gate’s biannual Translation Award, which was staged in the summer of 2006, directed by Thea Sharrock.
