Since the time of the classical Greek theater man has been elaborating on stage dialogue by the means of mechanical devices. The earliest of these devices was a method of painting scenery on flats located near the wings of the Greek stage. Aeschylus is said to have been the first to use this "skenegraphia", and from then to the present man has been involved in a development of the art of scene design. What follows is an application of some of the principles of this art, taken from a practical exercise in theater design of a production of Gelius Douvherty's Many Moons.A copy of this thesis is also housed in the Kalamazoo College Archives.
