In a time of self-isolation and social distancing, how do we, as theatre makers, tell the necessary and relevant social narratives of underrepresented voices? Through research funding from the Mary Lou Lemon Endowment for Underrepresented Voices, we bring you Distances. Distances is a research-based production process that blends traditional and digital performance art to give voice and bring awareness to marginalized and underrepresented societies. Using new digital performance and production techniques, we plan to bring you an immersive and powerful performance series that delves deep into the societal inequalities, injustices, and viewpoints prevalent in our world today.

Directed by David Kersnar
Premieres October 22, 2020

Available for streaming: 10/22/2020 throughout the fall semester.

Oklahoma State University Theatre and the O'Colly Media Group bring you The War of the Worlds, by H. G. Wells. Inspired by the Orson Wells Mercury Theatre radio production and adapted by our OSU Theatre Company into an Oklahoma-centric storyline, featuring music by the Red Dirt Rangers (one of the founding bands of red dirt roots music invented right here in Stillwater , Oklahoma.

The production is conceived and directed by David Kersnar using his group-oriented ensemble and improvisational devising process he developed with his home company in Lookingglass Theatre. The OSU production mixes social commentary on our contemporary obsession with fact news and social media addiction with the same hyper real slice-of-life Orson Wells radio style that promises to deliver some fun Halloween humor, thrills and chills.
