M.F.A. Projects


M.F.A. final student project

The M.F.A. final project is the most challenging aspect of the student’s involvement with the program. It is a confident demonstration of the student’s personal aesthetic and vision that reflects her explorations and discoveries during her residency in the program. Below you will find what our students are currently working on and to access some of the works from the past please visit Past Projects.

Current M.F.A. Projects

DRIFT (working title)

March 26-29, 2015

DRIFT is the final thesis production conceived by Deirdre McAllister, M.F.A. in theatre candidate at Towson University. The project will connect Towson students with individuals from the Man Alive Treatment Center to generate material inspired by elements of recovery. Through interviews, improvisation and collaborative writing exercises, the ensemble will empower each other to explore and celebrate new coping strategies and supportive artistic relationships. The script we create together will be performed in the basement of the center the weekend of March 26-29, 2015. For more information:


The Hyacinth Girl

April 16, 17 and 18

A performance created and directed by Leah Englund.

Marie does not clearly remember who she is. She's afraid that she is not a good person. The world around her is burned and barren, and she isn't sure if it's her fault. Prophets, soothsayers and gossips help her find her way. This fanciful journey is inspired by Rothko paintings and T.S. Elliot's the Wasteland.
