The College Collaboration Project playwrights choose a theme that they want to write about and that will be of interest for undergraduate theatre departments to explore during their academic year. The plays have addressed such socially important issues as addiction and social media, free speech on campus, racism, gender and sexuality identity, eating disorders and body dysmorphia, sexual assault on campus, and growing up in the #metoo era. The student artists contribute their voice to the development of the script and thru the process of bringing the plays to life become empowered artists and individuals. One of the strengths of the Program is that it generates conversation in the rehearsal room, across departments on the campus, and with each of the communities the plays are presented to.
The plays have been produced Off-Broadway, Regional Theaters, and Universities.
They have been written up in national publications as well as been presented at the Kennedy Centers American College Theatre Festival. To learn about the playwrights click on their photos each has a link to information on their College Collaboration Project play as well as all of their writing.
