'Sometimes the greatest show on Earth isn't the one you came to see'. Mister Major and the Minor Wife is a dynamic and haunting original one-act play written by senior Theatre TCU student Devin Berg and directed by senior Theatre TCU student Hannah Wright. A tragic tale of stifling imagination, deep repression, isolation, and twisted forms of love, this play will take hold of your heartstrings and refuse to let go even after the curtain falls in close.
