Welcome to College Theater at the MAC

From the inception of planning College Theater productions, each season is built with the idea that both escapism and engagement theater are important for students to experience and our audiences to enjoy. Escapism theater allows us to escape from our daily turmoil and daily life, offering pure entertainment. Engagement theater focuses on the human condition and the burning quest for a solution—it is theater we do not easily forget and that changes us in some way, forever.

The mission of both escapism and engagement theater is to expose everyone to the great theater of the past as well as important theater of today. We’ve chosen an eclectic season including both escapism and engagement theater, culled after considering countless titles and varied genres. Above all, we’re most interested in training our students as artists, both on the stage and behind the curtain, engaging with students and community in our audience, as well. That is the power of live theater, which does not exist except in this live, ephemeral moment—it is an art that celebrates interaction—on stage, but also between stage and audience.

The 2021–2022 College Theater season is a perfect example of this exciting mix: The Living, She Kills Monsters, The Dining Room and The Badger.

“I regard the theater as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
—Thornton Wilder, Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright and novelist

Thank you so much for supporting the voices of our talented students and power of live theater. We hope you join us again and again.

The Living was written in 1991 and first produced in 1993. Set in London, 1665, the script unfolds with heart and even humor during the bubonic plague. To me, it poignantly dramatizes the need, and growth, of community in the midst of much desperation, pain and fear. And this theme is one that many of us have pondered, during the past seventeen months, worldwide.

We will meet many characters, and many who, despite great risk or loss, continue to help and support those afflicted, and fight to end the plague, despite all odds.

Though the play is thirty years old, it has often had productions staged as a reaction to crisis, at different moments. Playwright Anthony Clarvoe commented on this in an interview in 2020. “The action of the play is about the impulse to draw back, to lie, to conceal, and to retreat versus the impulse to gather, to commune, to cooperate, to find common ground. Those two conflicting impulses seem to inform our response to every disaster.”

Legend tells us that Sir Isaac Newton, not a character in this play, though he’s mentioned, formulated his theory on gravitational theory while isolating during the plague. In a beautiful moment, this also informs a character’s ultimate reaction to what he’s learned from this time, and wants to encourage for us, the audience: “What Newton found: that the world would fly to pieces, but for a great force, a power in every single body in the world, which pulls it ceaselessly toward every other body, which is pulled ceaselessly toward it in turn. No matter what. We learned what holds the world together, in the plague.”
