Henry Wilkinson is proud to continue his graduate school career with A Lesson Before Dying. He is a second year MFA Scenic Design candidate that┬ádesigned “Master Harold”…and the Boys last season, a design that both informed and distantly echoes this one. With a degree in architecture from Clemson University and a passion for philosophy and the power for storytelling, Henry came to the theatre fairly recently as a space to unify these interests within the field of scenic design. A Lesson Before Dying has been a privilege to realize both for its mythically beautiful qualities that touch upon the grave and constant in human suffering and because of its tragically poignant resonance with the crises facing today’s America.
