As the 2005 winner of the School of Performing Arts annual National Playwriting Competition, "The House Where Nobody Lives" made its debut on WSU's Second Stage in November.
Now the play, like WSU's production of "Pippin" before it, has been accepted for regional competition in the American College Theater Festival.
The original drama, written by Arizona State University graduate student Paul North and directed by WSU theater professor Judith Babnich, competed with 56 plays in the seven-state region (Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota) to be chosen as one of nine to go to the annual festival. It was presented during the festival in Fargo, N.D. Jan. 25.
Winning plays from the eight regional festivals then are entered in the National College Theater Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. in April.
