Theatre Studies Director and Professor Scott Horstein has been on sabbatical this Fall. While on sabbatical he has been working on the project, IF I SHOULD WAKE (he is the dramaturg), which opened last night and is streaming online through Dec.10 (in two parts of 45 minutes each, exact stream schedule below). IF I SHOULD WAKE is a series of monologues fusing theater and film, featuring an ensemble of amazing writers, presented by the wonderful Greenway Court Theatre in LA.
Scott messaged us to say: "I'm really proud to share the work, and really grateful to everyone at school for the time and space to work on it."
Hope you're able to check it out. And check out the wonderful Spectrum News clip covering the show!
