Project FENCES: Costume Design Competition

In preparation for our production of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences, McCarter Theatre sponsored Project FENCES: Costume Design Competition. The competition engaged high school and undergraduate students from around the country in an exploration of playwright August Wilson’s masterwork Fences; and was intended to celebrate the theatrical art of costume design and potentially identify American theater’s next generation of talented costume designers. Winners were selected by Fences Costume Designer, Emilio Sosa, designer of ESOSA and finalist on Project Runway and Project Runway All-Stars.
