With the launch of this website, the MCA has created a platform for archiving and publishing images and stories from our 50-year history. Though many pages currently lack descriptions or illustrations, we’re committed to a program of ongoing research that will fill in the blanks over time. If you have information about past MCA Stage events, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Pure Desire - The Dream Theater of the Body Politic takes actual dreams and fashions them into a new and exciting theater experience. Pure Desire concluded with the players soliciting dreams from the audience. "Our intention is to redeem dreams as a source of storytelling, "said director Jim Shiflett. "If we can get people to tell their dreams, we can discover the fables of the 20th century.”
