MFA: Playwriting

Directing Professor

Dr. Wendy-Marie Martin


Two community theaters in the same city are accidentally putting on the same musical at the same time due to a publishing company's error. The members of the dueling troupes have to untangle the mess--the show must go on, of course! Between big misunderstandings, a few shenanigans (or hijinks, as some may say), and a lot of lessons learned, watch as each company battles to win the Red Curtain Rivalry and prove themselves the best production of "A Doll's House: The Musical!" that the community theatre community has ever seen.


This entry includes a full length play with music, accompanied by a scholarly afterword by the playwright which details the process of writing the play from start to finish.
