Andy Pierce ('04 Communications),who is now working toward his Ph.D. at the University of Missouri-Columbia, was just awarded the prestigious Eugene O'Neill Conference Fellowship and he will be spending part of his summer at the O'Neill Playwright's Conference as a literary assistant and assistant dramaturg.

According to Cynthia Allan, Chair of the Department of Communications, "The dramaturg is a person with a specialty in dramatic composition. They are responsible for a lot of the research and development of new scripts; historical accuracy, continuity, etc. They often work with theatre companies to consult on play script selection, etc. Dramaturgs play a big role in developing new material and are the most scholarly part of the process."
