Posters for the Empty Space Theater

In 1986 I worked with the amazing graphic designer Art Chantry to produce two posters for for the '86-'87 season of Seattle's Empty Space Theater.

Rat in the Skull is a challenging play about the interrogation of an IRA bomber. While the theater was uncomfortable with the image, Art and I insisted that it was appropriate. It was gratifying that the results of the audience survey confirmed that more people came to the show because of the poster than any other play to date.

For Aunt Dan and Lemon, another disturbing play, I returned to my graphic tape style.
