Cornell Theatre Night is an evening of short plays written, directed, performed, designed, and produced by Cornell alumni & current Cornellians. Every play is set somewhere on and around the Cornell campus. The plays will be presented at the Snapple Theater Center in midtown Manhattan for an audience which includes Cornellians in Entertainment – an impressive array of alumni working in film, television, theatre, architecture, entertainment law and other professions. This event will be a stellar evening of live theatre, and an excellent chance to network and reminisce with fellow Cornellians.

Rivchin’s advanced class tackled complex projects in high definition, producing four original narrative pieces, two music videos and one documentary piece.
In “Scripted” by Caitlin Cowie and Linda Barsi, a dust-sweeping would-be-playwright-by-night and a director’s assistant search together for characters whose fictional lives end up overtaking their own. In Oliver Dudman’s music videos (“Expectations,” music by Brian Han and “Spacewalk,” music by Starkey), interpersonal bonds and internal forces of gravity in human connections are explored using a combination of live action and animation techniques.
In “Zoo,” written and directed by J.T. Keller and Joe Rettberg, a young man and his best friend plan a trip to the zoo as a birthday outing, in an attempt to relive a moment from their past. In her non-fiction work, “From Burma to Ithaca,” Yi-Ke Peng takes an inside look at the resettlement of Karen refugees in Ithaca and the community whose support made their transitions possible. In “The Squint Painter,” by Rajendran Narayanan and Mario Rodriguez, a portrait of a young man as an artist is realized; while Rodriguez’s short narrative, “Unforgettable,” gives us a startling moment of clarity.
Lots happening this week as the semester comes to an end!
