Cason Murphy, ISU’s incoming assistant professor of theatre, was just awarded first prize in the Cinema ScandinaviaIngmar Bergman Writing Competition with his article, "Flirting with the ‘Loyal Wife’: Bergman’s Theatrical Affair with Nora."

Cinema Scandinavia‘s competition sought out articles exploring unique aspects of Bergman’s life and work and was held in conjunction with the Bergman 100 celebrations taking place throughout 2018 recognizing the 100th birthday of the great Swedish filmmaker. In his article, Murphy explores Bergman’s prolific theatrical career with specific focus on his radical deconstruction of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House in 1981 entitled Nora (which Murphy staged as his MFA thesis at Baylor University in 2015).
