For the second year in a row, the Department of Theater has received a Visioning Grant from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts to develop new work. In this case, the department is partnering with The Misa Table, a company that creates theater pieces through collective research, writing, and studio composition, to mount a production of its innovative new multi-media project, 1905. This piece combines theater, live music, and film to tell a story of a group of immigrants from Russia, Germany, and Mexico coming together in rural Nebraska in 1905 to create a new community. Through personal stories, the play deftly outlines the larger story of the rapidly evolving American society of the time, with new ideas pushing against old world traditions.
