More about The Play of Delights
Devised by the Ensemble
Source material: The Book of Delights by Ross Gay

Using Ross Gay’s book of essays as the source material and inspiration, this student-devised play is a mix of highly theatrical, physical theater scenes (taken directly from the book) and original scenes that mix genres and structure. Everything is connected by the theme of delight—and seeking and finding delight in unusual places.
