Chris Martin is a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Theatre. His research examines contemporary German and American strategies that are used, on and off the theatrical stage, to protect the construction of whiteness. He was first introduced to professional theatre as an Off-broadway stagehand for "The Prince and the Pauper" and has since spent time writing, directing, and teaching. His stage directing credits include Puccini’s "Gianni Schicchi", Hare’s "The Vertical Hour", and Reza’s "Life x3". Chris is also finishing an appropriation of Moliere's "Tartuffe."
