Rutgers Theater Company Presents: "Playwrights Festival"

Philip J. Levin Theater
November 30–December 4, 2016

Works by MFA playwrights Mary Clohan and Jake Mariani as well as alum Bryna Turner, performed by the graduating company.

Sardanapalus by Jake Mariani
directed by Knud Adams
Wednesday, November 30 and Friday, December 2, 7:30 p.m. | Saturday, December 3, 2 p.m.
How does a person navigate the mundane world without saying the wrong thing and getting into trouble? When is normal behavior a danger to the community? A darkly comic tale of obsession, oppression and longing in the ecosphere of a food coop.
 
The Virgin Woods by Mary Clohan
directed by Sarah Krohn
Thursday, December 1 and Saturday, December 3, 7:30 p.m. | Sunday, December 4, 2 p.m.
Two generations of theater-makers collide at a summer theater festival and must grapple with what it means to find fulfillment and success in both our life and our art. Does theater make life or life make theater and how the hell can an artist survive it all? A reimagining of Chekhov’s The Seagull.
 
Presented with performances of The Virgin Woods: Workshop presentation of Carlo at the Wedding by Bryna Turner
directed by Kevin Kittle
Carlo is going to be really well behaved today. She’s not going to get drunk. She’s not going to give any longwinded speeches. And she’s definitely not going to try to steal the bride back. An unbridled comedy inspired by Dorothy Baker’s Cassandra at the Wedding.
 
General Public $15/ Rutgers Alumni, Employees, and Seniors $12 / Students $10
