This is the beginning of Act I Scene ii. Shelby has just told M'Lynn she is pregnant. Kat Steffens is Shelby in this shot. I love the lighting in this. The ladies have blown a fuse, plugging in the Christmas tree lights. I was not on stage until after the lights came up, so I never saw how well this is done. There is light from the window, from the screen door, just out of the pic on the left, and from the house, which is through the arch to the right. It just looks so real!
