April 2015 E-news

We're just about a month into spring quarter, and while many of us are starting to think not only about the end of this academic year, but the beginning of next—Have you heard? It's our 75th Anniversary Season in 2015-2016!—there's still plenty of work to be done this quarter.

Every other spring brings us the opportunity to see our first-year MFA directing students make their UW Drama main stage debut. This year, instead of a program of one acts, Malika Oyetimein and Sean Ryan are collaborating on a full production of William Inge's Bus Stop, with Sean directing Act I and Malika taking over Acts II and III. The cast switches roles, too! We're excited to see the results, and we hope you'll join us in getting to know these talented artists.

See the show during the first week and receive 25% off the regular ticket price, excluding opening night on Friday, April 24. Use promo code: inge. Discount valid on 4/22, 4/23, 4/25, and 4/26.
