Forty-seven hours (and one ginormous peanut butter cream pie) later, we’re officially movin’ on out of the Lewis Center at the end of our class’s communal living experiment. It’s been a mad race to the finish line, and after a frantic midnight T-Sweets run, two fourteen-hour days, and three cockroach fatalities (from which we escaped mercifully unscathed), we’ve made it to the other side with a sizable performance piece in hand. Our piece uses three original scenes from the 1967 script for The Serpent, with one important addition–a new scene based on our experiences with 9/11, which was compiled and written during the course of the weekend. The experiment has definitely been an emotional roller coaster, but we all agree: it’s hands-down one of our most memorable academic experiences at Princeton thus far. ”What an amazing way to end my time here,” said Sara Shaw ’10. ”This kind of opportunity comes along once in a lifetime, and I’m so glad we made it happen.”
Talk about something to cross off your Princeton bucket list! We’ll be performing our final piece at 2pm this Thursday in the Matthews Acting Studio at the Lewis Center; admission is free and all audiences are welcome.
