Princeton Summer Theater: Agatha Christie's Spider's Web

Thu, Jul 13, 2017, 8:00 pm to Sun, Jul 23, 2017, 2:00 pm
World-renowned crime novelist and playwright Agatha Christie brilliantly blends the genres of mystery, comedy, thriller in this fantasia on her typical whodunit work. "Spider's Web" follows eccentric socialite Clarissa, who discovers a man murdered in her drawing room, having spent years spinning extraordinary tales of mystery to anyone who would listen. Drenched in suspense with surprising moments of levity and wit, "Spider's Web" offers a unique and rewarding departure from the usual Christie canon. PERFORMANCES July 13-15 and 20-22 at 8pm July 15-16 and 22-23 at 2pm Tickets required.
Hamilton Murray Theater, Princeton University

Princeton Summer Theater: The Crucible

Thu, Jul 27, 2017, 8:00 pm to Sun, Aug 6, 2017, 2:00 pm
Regarded as a one of the foremost classics of American theatre, Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" uses the proceedings of the Salem witch trials to examine the manic effects of mass hysteria in society. As an increasing number of upstanding townspeople are accused of witchcraft, Miller emphasizes the contagious nature of fear and the elusiveness of truth. The 1953 Tony Award-winning play invites us to question the importance of upholding morality in times of hardship.
