The elephant and the wedding
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis document discusses my development as a playwright and theater artist over the course of my three years in the MFA Playwriting Program at the University of Texas at Austin. As a framework for inquiry, I will focus primarily on my ways I use transitional space in my plays Operation Istanbul, Karlstad, and Lushly to interrogate and illuminate the value of unity in dramatic narrative. Concurrently, through personal reflection and analysis of my early theater training, I hope to define where oneness sits both in my personal and professional life.
