There are many factors to consider when designing the lighting for a production. Lighting is a powerful tool for enhancing the moods and tones of a play if used properly. Much of this power comes from the fact that its effects are largely subliminal. It is the duty of the lighting designer to understand these effects, and produce a lighting design that is both attractive and enhancing to the overall production.

Lighting design is very much an art, and in keeping with the theme of this book, only the most technical aspects of lighting design will be stressed.
