A Bright Room Called Day explored the choices of a group of friends and artists in Berlin as the Nazi Party steadily gains power throughout the 1930s. Agnes’ apartment was a well lived place that provided safety for the characters as Adolph is taking his power in Berlin. Lighting in the apartment was mainly driven by the practicals and had a warm, comforting inviting feel to it. The window of the apartment was an essential character as it was our only eye to the outside world where we could establish time of day, seasonal weather, and the fires that raged in the streets throughout the play. During the supernatural moments, the lighting left the realistic warmth of the apartment and entered into a theatrical world with flickering lights, atmospherics and figurative red lighting to emphasize the devils' presence.
