“Undressing Cinderella”: Behind the Scenes

On Tuesday, April 9th, the Theatre department sponsored a lunch and discussion about Middlebury’s inaugural New Play Festival.  Assistant Professor Andrew Smith ’97.5 sent out a prompt to as many playwrights sources as he could in order to produce two evenings of plays, co-directed by himself and by Teddy Anderson ’13.  The results were astounding – a stack of 101 plays was narrowed down to fourteen, with five written by Midd alum and one written by current student Otto Pierce ’14.
