Roy Bowen Theatre 1849 Cannon Dr.

Conceived and directed by Nadine George-Graves
Created and devised by the company

Connecting with the theme of the university’s sesquicentennial celebration, this devised new work will celebrate all that Buckeyes are, all we have accomplished and all that is yet to come by telling stories about the students, the faculty and the staff who have walked the Oval over the years at Ohio State.

During the second year in the graduate acting program, students research and devise an original work under faculty leadership. For this production, the company will spend autumn semester exploring Ohio State’s history in the University Archives, finding compelling stories to bring to the stage. The director will guide them through performance experiments from various traditions, using their discoveries to develop a script. The company will continue the devising process as the production moves into rehearsal in spring semester.

This original work is the department’s media-intensive production. Each season the department designates one production to explore the incorporation of new media with live performance.
