Civilians at The Met: Micharne Cloughley

Image from Daily Review
A graduate of the National Institute of Dramatic Art, Australian playwright Micharne Cloughley previously worked with The Civilians on Be the Death of Me. Now, as part of our residency with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Micharne is returning to New York to serve as resident writer on our investigation into the American Wing, titled The Way They Live.

A recent article from Daily News features Micharne's array of impressive accomplishments, her thoughts on the differences in theatrical cultures between Australia and New York, and her excitement in this rare "moment of opportunity" to work on an original project in conjunction with a globally recognized museum. 
“We’re asking the question of what it is to be an American,” Cloughley says. “The Wing has work from the 1700s through to the early 1900s, so it’s very exciting with that broad a scope to look at — particularly the divisions and the idea of ‘how the other side’ lives, whether that be the wealthy and the laborers, the colonizers and the native people, or the free and the slaves.”
We're so looking forward to having Micharne back at The Civilians! Check out the full article from the Daily Review HERE.
