$14 - $20

Unfortunately, due to a number of COVID-related delays and setbacks, we have had to cancel Stranded. Fortunately, enough of the process was able to happen for our students to realize valuable learning outcomes, despite not yielding a product that can be shared publicly.

We hope you will join us for an upcoming event: A new play reading of undergraduate Darby Sherwood's Zurich to Petersburg. Please check our event listings for more details as dates are finalized.

In a first-of-its-kind film project for UW Drama, four writers are creating five short screenplays based on themes present in Homer's The Odyssey, James Joyce's Ulysses, and our present-day lives: longing, missing and being missed, being stranded, and trying to get your message across through time and space. UW Drama faculty member Jeffrey Fracé directs a cast of graduate actors in this brand new film. The writers are Zahra Al Zuwayed, a creative writing graduate student in UW's Department of English, Eun Hye Kim, a 2019 UW graduate who recently published the book Yellow Boxes, Claire Fort, an 2016 alum of the PATP (MFA acting), and Darby Sherwood, a current UW Drama undergraduate.
