Prop design for Kid Simple, a play by Jordan Harrison, directed by Michael Leibenluft.
The play calls for a surreal “Speechless Cello,” that plays “notes you can only hear outside your ear.” The case looked like a mess of foil and wire when it was unlatched, but once fully open, the strings became taut and the cello took form. Photographs by Eric Anderson.
