ACTUALLY

by Anna Ziegler

November 24 – December 23, 2018

Two freshmen at Princeton spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy – and if unspoken, can it be called consent? A funny, witty and lyrical investigation into gender and race politics, our desire to fit in and the three sides to every story.

INDECENT

by Pulitzer Prize Winner Paula Vogel

January 26 – February 24, 2019

Inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. Set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, this play with music charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
“BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR! Remarkably powerful! Sheds light on a time when history, Jewish culture and the depiction of lesbian love explosively intersected!” – New York Times

Does she back the system, or back what she believes in? By the author of DRY POWDER.
