The first undergraduate co-ed class arrived at Princeton University in the fall of 1969. In celebration of this milestone in 2019, the Program in Theater facilitated journalistic research by three generations of Princeton women—current students, professional artist alumnae, and the first generation of graduating women—to culminate in a theatrical event exploring the experiences of women at the University. Students were paired with professional artist alumnae to research and create new, short performances about women who graduated from Princeton in the first few years of co-education at Princeton.
The process, led by Theater Director Jane Cox and Lecturer in Theater Suzanne Agins ’97, began in the summer of 2019 and was intended to culminate in an evening of theater in the Berlind Theatre in April 2020. Instead, the process will culminate in December 2020 with a short film. Agins, a Princeton alum and professional director, worked with student-alumnae pairs to create a filmed archive of the work in collaboration with theater and visual arts alum Milan Eldridge ’20.
