This thesis describes the design project for the Texas Tech University Theatre production of The Kentucky Cycle, written by Robert Schenkkan. Texas Tech University Theatre produced this play 5-18 February 1996 as part of their Mainstage Season. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the development and execution of both the scenic and costume design processes as applied to this specific production. Although research plays an important role in the design process, the intent of this thesis is a demonstration of the design process rather than a demonstration of the scholarly research required by some degree programs.
