CHARACTERS: 10 roles

Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, King Duncan, and one of the witches have already been cast.

There are MANY great roles left!

TWU Theatre presents Architecture of Loss: A Devised Piece, November 20-24, 2019.

Architecture of Loss: A Devised Piece

The goal of this project is to research how participants physically, mentally, and narratively experience loss and grief and then how adapting/devising the material for performance can benefit the participants.

This research project investigates the following questions:

Part I: How do people physically, mentally, and narratively experience loss and grief?
Part II: How does watching/experiencing a devised performance piece on loss affect how participants’ deal with loss?


  • Change in life after loss
  • Grief as “walking down a dark hallway with no doors or windows to escape”
  • Investigating before illness, during and after
  • Grief dreams
  • Memories and objects of that person
  • Ritualistic structure of loss, grief and death

CHARACTERS: 10-14 roles

Dr. Noah Lelek will lead the Devising class in fall 2019 and direct the final piece created with the group. This original piece will also have the opportunity to make its international premiere at the 2020 Arts in Society conference in Galway, Ireland in summer of 2020. (Enrolling in the class and study abroad is preferred but NOT required)
