Red Emma & the Mad Monk @ The Tank
directed by Katie Lindsay
August 2018 (first produced at Ars Nova's ANT Fest in 2017)
"Brilliantly, Diggle, the scene designer, has created brutalist-concrete walls and white-neon abstractions that evoke Sophocles' rock-hard style and the sun-baked Mediterranean setting - as well as the Arts District's own sharp, bone-dry architecture. Diggle's slabs are as bold and modern as a Louis Kahn masterwork and as primal as an old stone temple...Along with Broken Chord's ominous but restrained underscoring throughout, Diggle's stark designs make this 'Electra' open with a sharp beauty and a chilly awe. The music and the set pieces are the strongest, shrewdest elements of the entire production."

"One of Hackler's former SMU students, Diggle, a rising star in set design, now living in New York City, created the innovative outdoor set for DTC's 'Electra' in April. For this Production, Diggle created a stunning set with a rounded mound of dirt, suggestive of a hilltop, with a chipped bench, surrounded by suspended full-sized tree trunks."
