*denotes Master of Fine Arts Candidate



Michigan State University Department of Theatre put out a call for emerging playwrights of the global majority to write a new play for our diverse cohort of Master of Fine Arts Acting and Design candidates. After over three hundred submissions, the students selected playwright Iraisa Ann Reilly to write a play specifically for them. Through a series of interviews and exercises, Reilly created a play full of humor, wonder, and… puppets.

Iraisa Ann Reilly (She/Ella) is a writer, performer, and educator who is half-Cuban, half-Irish, and whole New Jersey.
Select full-length plays include Good Cuban Girls (Teatro del Sol, at The Arden Theatre), The Jersey Devil is a Papi Chulo (Winner, Latinx New Play Festival at La Jolla Playhouse 2023, Sol Fest 2022, Yale Drama Series Shortlist 2022, Finalist Leah Ryan Prize, KCACTF) Saturday Mourning Cartoons (Winner, Bay Area Playwright’s Festival 2022, Arkansas New Play Festival 2023, Finalist Goldberg Playwriting Prize 2022, Semifinalist Blue Ink Award 2023, Semifinalist Premiere Stages).

Her work has been developed with Theatre Exile, The New Harmony Project, The Chain Theatre, The Workshop Theatre, ARTHouse INKubator, NYU Production Lab’s Development Studio and the Latinx Playwright’s Circle. Her play “House Bill 3979: Amendment #10: The Life and Works of Dr. Hector P. Garcia” was commissioned and produced by Texas A&M-University-Corpus Christi in 2022.

Iraisa Ann is currently under commission with the Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia. She is a recipient of the 2023 Latinx Playwright’s Circle Mentorship, working with mentor Migdalia Cruz. Thanks to a Lucille Lortel Micro-commission, Iraisa Ann is currently writing and developing her one-woman show “January 6th: A Celebration,” to reclaim the date January 6th, a significant religious holiday in the Catholic Latine community.

As a screenwriter, her screenplay La Reina del Bronx won best screenplay at Fusion Film Festival and was a semifinalist for the Vail Screenwriting Competition. Iraisa Ann recently performed off-Broadway in Arlene Hutton’s According to the Chorus. She’s taught students of all ages and is an adjunct professor of Dramatic Writing at NYU.

Just because you fit in does not mean you belong.

According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the sense of belonging comes right after one’s physiological and safety needs are met. It is indeed one of the most fundamental human desires. We all want to fit in and to belong. To achieve that, we often present slightly different versions of ourselves depending on the environment. We put on numerous social masks for school, work, home, and even online, all tweaked to fit different circumstances. Despite how hard we try to fit in, I’m sure we all share similar moments where we still feel like we don’t really belong.

Iraisa Ann Reilly’s new play Stevie and the Real World, however, offers an alternative path to belong for those who are unwilling or unable to mold themselves to fit in. They are therefore often perceived as “strange” and “weird.” Yet, Stevie relentlessly continues to search for their own way to connect and belong, not by changing who they are, but by choosing themselves. In doing so, Stevie encourages others to find their own light. In today’s climate where social conformity is highly encouraged, I find so much power and beauty in Stevie’s journey. As you experience the play, I invite all Stevie(s) in our world to find their courage to always choose themselves.

Ji Won Jeon


This is the not-so-true story of nine college students…picked to go to a lake house together… and have their weekend filmed… to find out what happens when people stop being polite…and start turning into puppets…

Inspired in part by MTV’s once-groundbreaking show The Real World and written specifically for the eight actors in our third-year MFA cohort, Iraisa Ann Reilly’s play raises questions about self-actualization, memory and perception, technological change, and dairy farming as the characters journey through space and time trying to re-open a portal to another dimension. Having variously left Boston, Paris, Los Angeles, and Kalamazoo to travel “up north” to a Michigan vacation home, they jog their memories in an effort to recapture their undergraduate experience from sixteen years earlier.

Their memories share some core elements, but the disparities highlight the importance of perception as each character remembers feeling left out or hurt, or in some cases making a particular connection. Peter and Sebastian express mutual enmity due to their competing romantic interest in Shelby. While Fran remembers Promise rejecting their familial relationship as siblings, Promise remembers being overshadowed and scolded by Fran. Andre recalls feeling like an outsider, but making a decision to befriend Athena because she respects him enough to try to communicate with him and learn his name. Shelby’s memory focuses on her own efforts to make Athena feel welcome, despite Athena’s recollection that everyone ignored her. Fred offers a more detached point of view, framing himself as a director exploring film noir style in contrast to the documentary style envisioned by Peter.     

Stevie, the ninth member of the group, is almost entirely left out of these memories. In the intervening years, others have become quite successful as an internationally renowned wedding planner, a filmmaker and television producer, two Michigan-based on-air television personalities, and two feuding ice cream entrepreneurs. Viewing Stevie as a loose end that threatens their ambitions, they return to the lake hoping to make amends or further conceal their past. Stevie revels in disrupting their comfortable lives, sending the others on a quest to reflect on beginnings and betrayals in their relationships with one another. As their perceptions change, all must seek reconciliation, or at least resolution.
