Women of Manhattan is a play written by John Patrick Shanley, originally performed in 1986. It revolves around the lives of three women living in 80s New York, trying to deal with their struggling love lives.
This play was my first foray into sound design for theatre. As a fairly straightforward drama, I wanted to help create a sound scape to support the play using varying layers of atmos. I also compiled a playlist of 80s pop hits featuring acts such as Blondie and Talking Heads to use as scene transitions and set the era of play.
