Everyman Theatre of Baltimore is proud to have Christopher and Justin Swader in house to design the set for their new production of August Wilson’s “Radio Golf.” The New York-based team has worked with theaters all over the country, and created installations for A$AP Rocky. “Radio Golf” is the final play in renowned playwright’s 10-play opus, THE AMERICAN CENTURY CYCLE, and highlights the challenges faced by modern-day African-Americans straddling the line between monetary success and cultural assimilation.
The Swader Brothers received a 2016 American Theatre Wing Henry Hewes Design Award Nomination (The Offending Gesture), and are winners of the 2017 AUDELCO Award (The Three Musketeers), 2018 IRNE Award (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and the 2019 Carbonell Award (One Night in Miami). They were finalists in the 2017 World Stage Design exhibition (Jarring). In addition, their work will be exhibited at the 2019 Prague Quadrennial.
