Student Playwrights Festival


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!

$8 for students
$10 for faculty, staff, and seniors
$12 for general public
FREE with student events eligibility
Available at the Frist Box Office, 609-258-9220, or at in advance

“Baby Doll” to Arrive at McCarter Theatre

BabyDoll-bgTickets are on sale now for the McCarter Theatre Center‘s production of Tennessee Williams 1950s film masterpiece, Baby DollThe show runs from September 11 through October 11th. 

The production stars Patricia Conolly, Susannah Hoffman, Robert Joy, and Dylan McDermott.  Adaptation to stage by Pierre Laville and Emily Mann and directed by Emily Mann.

Baby Doll was condemned in its time for its riveting tale of commercial and erotic vengeance. The American premiere of this theatrical adaptation will ignite the stage with its darkly comic, steamy tale of one delicate girl’s awakening. From the author of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, and A Streetcar Named Desire, Baby Doll is pure Williams, an enthralling tale of prejudice, sexual politics, and passion.
