Happenings & Highlights

 for all ages and experience levels to read plays aloud. Join us virtually for a fun and informal celebration of Shakespeare. All are welcome as readers or listeners!


The Work of Adrienne Kennedy: Inspiration & Influence

Nominated for a Drama League Award: Outstanding Digital Theater, Collection, or Festival!

Round House Theatre (Bethesda, MD) in association with McCarter Theatre Center (Princeton, NJ)
Conceived by Nicole A. Watson


Adrienne Kennedy is one of the most prolific and widely studied living playwrights. Despite her outsized influence, Kennedy is not a household name. This digital festival is a celebration of why she should be.


The Manic Monologues

Nominated for a Drama League Award: Outstanding Digital Theater, Collection, or Festival!

In a unique collaboration with Princeton University Health Services, The 24 Hour Plays, and Innovations in Socially Distant Performance at the Lewis Center for the Arts, The Manic Monologues brings to life true stories — experiences submitted by resilient people living all across the world. 

Take a journey through the minds and voices of people who bravely share the way mental illness has affected their lives, performed by a celebrated cast of actors – enhanced by interactive design and technology.

In The News

"Having this box set and having A Christmas Carol to bring us all together again is something so magical that can't really be replaced," Chandler Miller told ABC News. 

Watch as Chandler (who you may recognize from her role as Christmas Present at McCarter!) and her family explain why A Christmas Carol @HOME was such a meaningful experience for them.
