The Pennington School Alumni Theater will hold its second annual production, titled Overnight, an original play written by Henry Sheeran (’14), production designed by Tim Secrest (’14), and directed by Henry Sheeran. Four shows will be held from July 12 to 15 at 8 p.m. and a matinee on July 15 at 3 p.m. in Pennington’s McLarty Blackbox Theater.
Overnight follows the story of newly married Paul and Susan as they find out what the strange noise is that comes from their neighbor’s backyard in the night. Written and developed during Mr. Sheeran’s time abroad in Berlin, Overnight is a play that deals with what separates people — walls, borders, fences — and what breaks these down. Taking place in Princeton, New Jersey in November 1989, the heart of the play is not any particular division between people, but rather the ghosts of division that seep from the public to the private world and back again. more
