Award winning playwright writes for MU Theatre Department

Nov 13, 2014

                The MU Theatre Department enlisted an award winning playwright to write a play for their fall performance. 

         Caridad Svich is an OBIE (Off Broadway) Lifetime Achievement winner and the writer of The Orphan Sea, the play she wrote just for the MU Theatre Department. 

         An MU professor and the director of The Orphan Sea, Kevin Brown says he simply asked Svich over email to help with the production of a play at MU.  He says it was not originally planned for her to write something new for the MU production.
