M.A. Ensemble Create Derived Play

Under the direction of David Schwingle, the M.A. students in Theatre created a derived play. Using acting exercises, research, and historical photographs, the group created a 70 minute original play in the spirit of Grotowski and Commedia. The group researched a number of historical places and time periods, including rural America in the 1900s, the roots and early days of World War I, treason and imprisonment facts during World War I, and so on. The scenes and dialogue included historical details of place and time. 

Ensemble members include: John Cox, Kaitlyn Chisholm, Rebekah Nason, Bethany Woodfin (dramaturge), Ashley Gwillim, and Amy Murray.

 

The bare-bones performance was given during the final week of classes. The group hopes to continue work on the script.
