OSU, The Builders Association create HOUSE/DIVIDED

The Builders Association, a nonprofit theatre company, partnered Ohio State University students and faculty an opportunity to collaborate on a show commissioned by the Wexner Center for the Arts.

The resulting multi-media theatre production HOUSE/DIVIDED takes a look at the housing foreclosure crisis through the lens of John Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes of Wrath.

The New York-based Builders Association’s unique process of script writing and set design gave students and faculty across different academic disciplines to change to collaborate on the show’s creation. They meet with departments and classes across a variety of areas including sociology, architecture, and finance.
