Thomas Murray's documentary "The Right of Way" at the Cube

Thomas Murray, a third-year MFA candidate in Public Directing and Dialogue has created a documentary play, The Right of Way, about the death of a bicyclist in Chicago. He developed the drama on the basis of interviews with the bicyclist's family and friends, court transcripts, and contextual interviews with civil engineers, urban planners, lawyers, and historians. Former MURP students Tara Reel and Michael Stapor are both referenced in the play. The Right of Way is scheduled for a full production in the Cube at the Moss Arts Center, March 29-31. Tickets are free and may be accessed here: VT event listing: http://www.performingarts.vt.edu/index.php/events/view/the-right-of-way Public Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/151386755549842/  A short post-show discussion moderated by RIDE Solutions will follow each performance. In addition, Murray’s work was selected for discussion at the Sackler Student Symposium at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. next week. He will also be co-presenting at the national conference for the American Planning Association with Michael Stapor in April. The two will offer an educational session entitled Docudrama for Catalyzing Complete Streets Conversation that will reflect on The Right of Way's connection with non-arts partners. Congratulations to Thomas!
