Gender Graphic 500x500

2021-2022 SEASON

One of the greatest opportunities in theatre is the exploration of the effects of social and cultural norms on society. Our 2021-2022 season is dedicated to the examination of the contemporary understanding of gender. These scripts are intended to provoke discussion and drive our students and audiences to better champion inclusivity within our community. 

Throughout the year, a diversity of voices and spectrum of representation will return life to our stages so abruptly abandoned due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We hope you will consider being a season subscriber to the MSU Department of Theatre and join our students on a journey designed to challenge learned assumptions and foster critical awareness of our culture’s evolving definition of self. 

Sincerely, 
Stephen Di Benedetto
