The purpose of this thesis is to document the artistic process of the costume design for John Patrick Shanley's Savage in Limbo, which was produced at the University of Maryland, College Park by the Department of Theatre in March of 2006. The intent of this document is to depict the costume designer's process from textual analysis through completion of the stage design in four chapters. Chapter 1 is a textual analysis of Shanley's script. Chapter 2 details the meetings, visual research and pre-production collaboration of the director and design team that worked to create the design concept. Chapter 3 documents the technical realization of the costume design and collaboration with other members of the production team. Chapter 4 is a critical self-analysis reflecting on both strengths and weaknesses of the costume design and the designer's process.
