A play co-written by Cason Murphy, Southern Arkansas University’s director of theatre and assistant professor of musical theatre, and Karen Murphy has been recognized by the 2016 Southwest Playwriting Competition.

The Murphy’s two-act drama, “Parched,” won second place and will be a part of the 2017 New Play Readings Festival, April 21-23, at Stage West – a regional theatre founded in 1979 in Fort Worth, Texas, and home to a professional, equity-contract theatre company.

Cason Murphy served two AmeriCorps terms as the technical director at the Prescott Center for the Arts in Arizona after earning his AA in Theatre and Certification in Acting from the Los Angeles City College Theatre Academy and his BA in Theatre from UCLA. After completing his MFA in directing at Baylor University, he joined the faculty at SAU in August 2016.
