Michael Erickson, professor and playwright in the English Department of the College of Arts & Scienes, will be in residence in Ashland, Oregon, after his play, "Oberon Springs," won the Ashland New Plays Festival contest. Another Erickson full-length play, "Honor Student," was selected for the Capital Repertory Theatre's four-day "NEXT ACT!" New Play Summit in New York. His one-act "Caveman's Rock" took second place in a science playwriting competition at Stony Brook SUNY.
