Feathers and Teeth is set in 1978 in a Midwestern factory town. Charise Castro Smith’s script includes stage directions that reference pop culture, fashion trends and important figures from the era including Farrah Fawcett, Led Zeppelin, polyester suits, The Brady Bunch and Richard Nixon. Costume designer Christine Pascual was tasked with designing clothes that would befit a seemingly tight-knit family of the late ‘70s. Below are sketches of Pascual’s costumes featured in the play.
