The Brown/Trinity Rep MFA Program has announced that it will present María Irene Fornés' Mud, directed by Mauricio Salgado, and Erin Courtney's A Map of Virtue, directed by Kate Bergstrom, in rep this spring. Both productions will take place at the Pell Chafee Performance Center.

In Mud (May 5-20), Mae and Lloyd live in near destitution with only each other for company. When their literate neighbor Henry is invited into their home, his education and experiences shake the very foundation of their lives.

A Map of Virtue (May 6-21) is a thriller full of unexpected twists. In the play, drawn together time and time again by a very tiny bird statue, Mark and Sarah experience chance meetings that catapult them into an unpredictable chain of events that leaves them both forever changed.

Brown University/Trinity Rep MFA Programs provide a three-year professional training program for 18 students under the auspices of an Ivy League University and Rhode Island's Tony Award-winning theater company.
