West campus hosts American premiere of 'Indivisible'

February 18, 2010

The new play “Indivisible” receives its American premiere March 4-7 at Arizona State University’s West campus, in a co-production with iTheatre Collaborative.

“Indivisible” was written by Taylor Doherty, a faculty member in theatre and digital media at Hilbert College in Hamburg, N.Y. Doherty was one of a select group of playwrights from across the United States and the United Kingdom whose plays were selected for development at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska.

Charles St. Clair, who directs the premiere, became aware of the play while serving as a featured artist at the conference in 2009.  “‘Indivisible’ deals with how people respond to heartbreak and adversity and what can happen when greed and materialism are rewarded and violence seems a fact of life, whether it is in America, the world as a whole or a single room with four beds,” says St. Clair.

St. Clair is a faculty member in the Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies (HArCS) on the West campus. HArCS, one of three divisions in ASU’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, brings together art, English, ethnic studies, history, philosophy, religion and women’s studies to create interdisciplinary programs that provide opportunities for intellectual dialogue between students and faculty.


he production of “Indivisible” will be presented March 4 through 7 in Second Stage West, on the lower level of the University Center Building at ASU’s West campus, 4701 W. Thunderbird Road in Phoenix. Performances Thursday through Saturday are at 7:30 p.m.; the Sunday matinee is at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 general admission and $7 for students and seniors.
