CWRU/CPH MFA Graduate Ensemble presents “Identity Theft”

Identity Theft
Seven Lives Filtered Through the Ideas of August Strindberg
February 27 – March 9, The Helen

Written and assembled by Anders Cato and The Graduate Ensemble of 2014
Texts by August Strindberg
Translated by Anders Cato
Directed by Anders Cato

Who am I?” The question every person examines at least once in their lives. Director Anders Cato (Red, Crime and Punishment) returns to Cleveland Play House to work for the first time with the CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program Graduate Ensemble as they explore this universal uncertainty. Using the works of daring playwright August Strindberg as inspiration, these seven young actors examine their own contemporary life experiences in this original piece and break open our preconceived notions of who we are.

    Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare • April 11-20, 2014 • Directed by Jerrold Scott • Written in the early 1600s, with the upheaval of a new ruler on the throne, Measure is considered one of the Bard’s ‘problem plays.’ It defies simple classification, as the play explores whether ideas such as right or wrong, and good or bad, are really that easy to distinguish from one another. • for tickets and information visit
