John Wilson

John Wilson (Scenic Design, TD, Painter) is excited to be back with The New Colony after previously designing Scapegoat, Kin Folk, Merge, Byhalia, Mississippi, Kate and Sam Are Not Breaking Up, and B-Side Studio. He won the 2016 Non-Equity Jeff Award for Best Scenic Design for Byhalia, Mississippi with New Colony and Definition Theater. The production was remounted at Steppenwolf later that summer of 2016 as the first scenic design at the Steppenwolf’s new 1700 space where his next design Columbinus with The Yard will premier in April. Also in January he has designed Pillars of The Community (Strawdog) and The Enchanted Castle (Mudlark). He is a company member with Collaboraction, an artistic associate with WildClaw Theater, as well as an artistic associate and mentor of The Yard.  He wishes to thank this wonderful group of artists, Evan, Slim and Heather for all their love and support. He painted the four paintings in the show and they are for sale with 20% of the fee going back to New Colony. Please visit his website to see additional artwork and design at
