"Nina Morrison's world is an interesting and fun place to be. If only we could live in a world like this all the time."

Nina Morrison is a formerly Brooklyn-based, but currently Iowa-City-based, director and devisor of experimental theater.

In Fall 2013 I began the 3-year MFA Directing Program at the University of Iowa. The Iowa Directing program is focused on new work, work created by the playwrights in the Playwrights Workshop and devised work by the directors, as well as adaptations of classic plays. To learn more: Iowa MFA Directing.

My first directing project was the play Desire Caught by the Tail by Pablo Picasso. Dec. 5-7, 2013 in Theatre B, University of Iowa Theatre Building.

The (super-excellent) Tropics of Meta Blog invited me to write about my experience applying to MFA programs: The Right Way to Get an MFA. The title is ironic, I don't know the right way to do almost anything.
