Doing this new play from a local author. It takes place in a prison camp for German soldiers held captive in America during WWII. They work on a beet farm and at one point a character goes into a rage and is supposed to throw and smash crates. Black box theater and the audience is sitting only a few feet away. I've got serious safety concerns with the whole concept. I was thinking maybe I could build a set of stunt crate to smash and we could tone down the whole throwing things around. I've been thinking about building crates out of 1x stock and cutting weak points into them so the crate can easily break in half but it's strong enough to not go flying into a million pieces. Any ideas of how to pull this off safely would be greatly appreciated.
