Pennington Alumni Theater presents "Overnight"
Pennington Alumni Theater presents "Overnight"

Capital J Theater will be presenting the second annual Pennington School Alumni Production, Overnight, from Wednesday, July 12, to Saturday, July 15.

An original play written and directed by Henry Sheeran '14 and production designed by Tim Secrest '14, Overnight is set in Princeton in 1989 and follows newly married couple Paul and Susan as they seek answers regarding a strange noise coming from their neighbor's backyard at night. The play was written during Sheeran's time abroad in Berlin.

Five shows will be held in the School's Diane T. McLarty "Blackbox" Theater.

"I'm thrilled that the Alumni Theatre Project is up and running for year two. It's amazing to see how Henry Sheeran and Tim Secrest have developed as theater artists since their time at Pennington. One of the joys of my profession is watching students grow up and apply skills they have learned to new paths and projects; they are doing just this! I also love the different generations of theatre students from Pennington joining together back in the Blackbox to make great art," said Director of Drama Lisa Houston.

This play contains strong language, violence, and adult themes.

Showtimes begin on Wednesday, July 12, at 8:00 p.m. There will be additional performances Thursday and Friday at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 15, at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are available here, and can also be bought at the door if tickets were not purchased in advance. All ticket proceeds will be used to help fund next year's show.
