IU's M.F.A. playwriting program gives you a first-hand look at the development process with staged readings of early drafts leading up to performances in the Wells-Metz Theatre. This year, IU Theatre presents a new work by third-year playwright Bruce Walsh. We look forward to seeing what he has in store for us! Keep an eye on social media for insights into the process of creating a new work for the stage.
