Maple and Vine - January 17-29th at the Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse
Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950's re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised what their new neighbors - and they themselves - are willing to sacrifice for happiness. This is the thesis production for 3rd-year MFA Directing candidate, Sean Ryan.

As You Like It - February 7th-19th at the Glenn Hughes Penthouse Theatre
Shakespeare's glorious comedy of love and change is reimagined for 1950's America.

Directed by School of Drama faculty member Jeffrey Fracé, this production features live music, graduate and undergraduate actors, and UW MFA and BA designers.
