The Little Company’s performance of “Einstein’s Dreams,” adapted from an Alan Lightman novel, will travel to Edinburgh, Scotland, in 2018.
It was one of six shows selected from nine states to perform at the regional conference of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Statesboro, Georgia. That made it eligible to be selected to perform at the International Collegiate Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, which is part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The festival is the world’s largest arts festival; last year, it spanned 25 days and featured performances of 3,398 shows in 300 venues by representatives from 40 countries.
The piece was first performed at MSU in 2016 by members of the educational theatre program The Little Company, a trademark of the MSU Theatre Program and touring troupe that performs for schools across the state, particularly in MSU’s service region.
The MSU contingency to Scotland will include more than 25 students and faculty. They will be in Scotland for two weeks, Aug. 1-14, for six performances.
