Notre Dame Film, Television, and Theatre presents
ND Theatre NOW: Two New One-Act Plays by ND Students
Coats by Henry Stone ’21
The Tea on ND by Samuel B. Jackson II ’20
In Coats, an absurdist comedy written by Henry Stone (’21) and directed by Patrick Starner (’20), two coat check workers in a grimy regional theatre get into a spot of trouble when a visiting showman attempts to rob the theatre safe. In an absurd world where empathy is a disease and conversation is roundabout, anything goes.
The Tea on ND, written by Samuel B. Jackson II (’20) and directed by Maria Amenabar Farias (’20), imagines an alternate universe on the Notre Dame campus – a world in which identities are flipped, norms inverted, and expectations upended. An acerbic exploration of race, class, and mental health in the ND community, The Tea on ND turns Notre Dame upside down.
February 20 – March 1, 2020 in the Philbin Studio Theatre
Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sunday at 2:30 pm
