"Fleeing Blue," written by Milta Ortiz, is an exploration of the effects of war, politics and paranoia on relationships shared by a group of people who practice arts, academics and cruelty.
The piece was selected from a variety of new plays submitted by student playwrights from across the United States. The WSU theater program has sponsored the National Playwriting Competition for more than 34 years, and produces the winning play during the regular production year. Students have the opportunity to work with the play's author on creating roles for the first time with the original script.
Ortiz is a playwright, poet and performer from Northwestern University's Writing for the Screen and Stage master's program. She earned her bachelor's in creative writing from San Francisco State University.
The media sponsor for "Fleeing Blue" is KMUW FM89, Wichita Public Radio.
