Who Are You? Lucy Shipman, the current lightning and sound designer for the St. Catharines branch of Empty Box Theatre Company.

Shakespeare is...? The greatest English wordsmith of all time and a huge influence on and inspiration to myself and millions of others in the business.

What is the best Shakespeare play?: I've yet to read them all, but at the moment my personal favourite is the Henry VI quartet (Henry VI parts 1,2,3, and Richard III). There is no accurate way to quantify the 'best' because it's a subjective value, so my favourite is the next best thing, right?

The most awesome thing you've done for the show so far is...? I've been playing around with lighting colours recently. I'm hoping for a mood that's very unsettling. So that's been fun.

What's the best idea you've had for the show so far? Figuring out the stage magic for the shadow screen!

The best thing about lighting/sound design is...? It's fun, it gives me experience in my chosen field(s), it's not necessarily high-stress, and I get to work with amazing people.

Why should people come see Titus? Titus is definitely a show for the modern age. It's bloody, it's brutal, it's outrageous, and I think EBTC's rendition will be both stunning and inventive.
