Friday, April 20th at Theatre Intime located at Princeton University

Every year, Theatre Intime hosts the Student Playwrights Festival, a full production of original one-act plays written by Princeton students! This year, Intime is returning SPF to its two-weekend format, affirming its dedication to honoring and showcasing the brilliance of our student writers.

Our performances will exhibit the familiar in a new light — from biblical stories to the suburban American ideal to what it means to be a performer. We invite you to discover the absurd, the hysterical and the uncomfortable through our three selections:

“A Place for Dust & Flies” by Aidan Gray ’18
“Orsen” by Richard Peng ’20
“Ribs” by Hannah Wang ’21

Theatre Intime is proud to be the creative platform for these works and excited to bring these stories to life!
