Who
The ASU Herberger College School of Theatre and Film’s new MFA cohort is comprised of performers, directors and designers from across the nation.

What
Every three years, a select group of performers, directors and designers gathers at the ASU Herberger College School of Theatre and Film in Tempe to create exciting theatre while earning their MFAs. The school’s new MFA cohort presents its first collaboration, A Dream Project, which weaves together dramatic interpretations of the writings of the playwrights Ibsen, Chekhov and Strindberg.

The MFA students believe that A Dream Project represents amazing work by amazing playwrights, and have been working for many months to find overlaps and united themes among them. The work includes readings from each of the great dramatists' body of work, as well as material from their letters and reviews.
