In the midst of the omicron variant, the MFA Directing Fellows, organized by Scout Davis, held a zoom reading of Diana Oh’s monumental play “My H8 Letter to the Gr8 American Theatre” with an acting company from the school of drama. (Use the Link to See Diana Oh’s Script – Shared Publically Via Google Docs).
The project included a 2-day workshop exploring Oh’s text while interacting with Diana. The workshop’s goal was to excavate the play’s greater themes and extrapolate them to brainstorm a new future for the field.
This project was made possible with support of grant# 2021-030 from the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier.
