MURDER AT THE VICARAGE
My diploma work is the staging for the play The Murder at the Vicarage at the Pori Theatre. The play is based on the novel of the same name by Agatha Christie, and it is staged in late 1940s England. The whole play takes place in the vicar’s study. As the set designer, I had to create a space that does not change during the entire three-hour performance. The space represents many things. It suggests the decade, but at the same time appears, with its threadbare look and style, to have served many other vicars in the past. The play was directed by Reino Bragge, and costumes were designed by Maarit Kalmakurki. The premiere was in February 2006.
Tuuli Seppälä studied textile design at the University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, in 2000–2001. She began her studies at the University of Art and Design Helsinki in the Department of Design for Theatre, Film and Television in autumn 2001. Prior to her university studies, she attended an upper secondary school specialising in art in Pori. Her final thesis project was her first set design for a professional theatre, but she has designed the sets for amateur musicals in Luvia and summer theatre in Rauma. She has also illustrated books and designed logos. Her interests include oil painting and history.
