Events | Feuchtwanger Refreshed 2024

Villa Aurora | January 23, 2024 | 7:30 PM (PST)

Eight graduate writers from USC's School of Dramatic Arts MFA Dramatic Writing Program will be presenting short plays inspired by and in dialogue with Lion Feuchtwanger's essay "The Working Problems of the Writer in Exile." Actors Michael Khachanov, Mehrnaz Mohammadi, and Arye Gross will play the roles as these new short plays examine how artists and their works survive being torn from their roots and whether it is possible to transplant one's life and art – and live again.

With Oliver Jai’Sen Mayer, writer, professor, Associate Dean of Faculty, and Associate Dean of Strategic Initiatives at USC's School of Dramatic Arts

Feuchtwanger Refreshed is an ongoing collaboration between USC's School of Dramatic Arts MFA Dramatic Writing Program, USC Libraries, and Villa Aurora through which graduate playwrights and their instructors present short scenes inspired by archival holdings and writings from USC's Feuchtwanger Memorial Library.
