This image is a photograph of Linfield College Theatre’s November 2012 production of Kickin’ Sand and Tellin’ Lies by Jackson B. Miller and Christopher Forrer. A single unit set was utilized to depict the numerous locales in which the play took place. Changes in areas used by the actors, furniture pieces, props, lighting, and images and videos projected on the three vertical screens were employed to suggest the locales. The play was directed by Janet Gupton with scenic and lighting designs by Tyrone Marshall, costume design by Rebecca Meridith, sound design by Laura Haspel, and technical direction by Robert Vaughn. Jennifer Layton was the stage manager.

The dory fishers go on strike and picket outside the fish market (Act II, scene 8). The characters (actors) include, from left to right, BEN “GUSTY” GUSTAVESON (Colton Wright), CELIA WARNER (Amanda Wolf), CLINT “SALTY” FOLEY (Logan Mays), MARILYN HANFORD (Madison Sanchez), BARBARA JENKINS (Sammi Palmer), and SAM “THE KID” McBRIDE (Nicholas Granato).
