MFA Lab Series

2016 MFA Lab Series

The MFA Lab series matches excellent young theatre directors from Northwestern’s MFA program with emerging designers from its partner MFA program in stage design for exciting and unexpected collaborations. These artists are the next wave, given the freedom to create together on bold, risk-taking productions of plays by today's most groundbreaking writers.

Hal and Martha Hyer Wallis Theater, 1949 Campus Drive, Evanston

Mary Swanson has just moved to Middletown - ready to start a family and eager for a small-town community. But life here is complicated: neighbors almost strangers, strangers almost friends, and moments of connection both sincere and fleeting. In a world where you are defined by your role, what happens when you no longer know what that role is, or perhaps never did? Deftly painted by Pulitzer finalist Will Eno, MIDDLETOWN is the playful, poignant portrait of a town with two lives.​​
