Members of the CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program’s Class of 2020 take their final bow as an ensemble, with Shakespeare’s play about money, privilege, prejudice and the outsider. The play, which asks whether mercy and retribution can coexist, continues to resonate with modern audiences due to its potent mix of romance, suspense, and moral complexity.

An ordinary town. With ordinary people. Living ordinary lives? Middletown is a fictitious small town where we meet people going about their lives from day to day. Told with humor and deep compassion, this spiritual successor to Thornton Wilder’s Our Town shows us the joy and sadness, the small victories and defeats we experience as we journey through life. This production will introduce the Class of 2022 to local audiences
