Biography

Craig is a storyteller, striving to tell stories in unique, fantastical, moving and wondrous ways. He is a theatrical designer, and his art is the art of making the story visible, meaningful and resonant with an audience, whose understanding of “the visual” is increasingly more sophisticated.

Craig is an Associate Professor of Theatre, and Knox's resident designer and technical director. He received his B.A. from Knox College, and holds M.F.A.'s in both Scenic and Lighting Design from Carnegie Mellon University. He is an inaugural member of the Vitalist Theatre in Chicago, whose designs include the award winning productions of A Passage to India and Mother Courage and Her Children, Anna Karenina, Floating Rhoda and the Glue Man, King Lear, The Mill On The Floss, and the world premiere of Anung's First American Christmas. Other Chicago designs include the sets for Death and the Maiden at the Timeline Theatre, as well as Pippin, Night Sky, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Museum in other venues across the city. Favorite Knox designs include Next Fall, The Green Bird, The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Under Construction, Twelfth Night, Intimate Apparel, Tartuffe, Rosa & Blanca, The Skriker, Noises Off, A Moon for the Misbegotten, As You Like It, The Grapes of Wrath, War and Peace, Arcadia and Macbeth.
