The Garden Theatre wasn’t the only theater playing “The Hunger Games” this weekend. To settle the debate of which board member would win the Hunger Games, Theatre Intime was too:
The year is 2012, and Princeton University has been bathed in blood.
A University committee came to the conclusion that freshmen should not be allowed to be involved with sororities and fraternities. In a last-ditch effort to save their organizations, the Greeks revolted. Although at first they stood alone against the University, as the war dragged on, other student groups joined their cause. Eventually the University won out, but many lives were lost and egos bruised. In response, the University instituted the Hunger Games, a yearly event in which the campus is cleared out and the members of a student organization are forced to fight to death until only one remains. The purpose of these games is to remind the student organizations that they are subservient to the University and to occasionally decimate the unruly leadership of an organization.
Theatre Intime has the unfortunate luck of being the first student organization subjected to the Hunger Games.
21 board members enter the arena, but only one will exit….
Thanks to this fanfic by Philip Rosen ‘13, four tributes have already died. The winner will be announced by vote soon. We here at the University Press Club wonder how many campus squirrels will be turned into stew before then.
