Community Engaged Theater Workshop with Nell Bang-Jensen
Join award-winning theater director and Swarthmore alum Nell Bang-Jensen '11 for an exploration of how theater-making can be rooted in community and real life stories. Nell's interests in radical models for community engagement, social practice, devising, and new play development guide much of her work as a theater maker and as Artistic Director of Theater Horizon. In this one-and-a-half-hour workshop, Nell will introduce the group to her practice, and guide us through some methods of making art with specific communities and people's lived experiences.

New play by Eva Nahass '24
The Swarthmore Theater Department presents a reading of a new play by Eva Nahass '24.
In this character-driven play by E. Nahass (‘24), a two-story house becomes a haven for five roommates. This home is the place that, at the end of every work day, bad experience, and night out, these queer, neurodivergent young adults return to. Unfortunately, that doesn’t save them from the everyday trials of being a part of the real world, nor from struggling with their own brains. But having roommates means that there’s usually someone around to get them out of their own heads.
Please join us in the Frear Ensemble Theater on October 28th for a reading of this brand-new work with professional actors! This event is free and open to the public.
