Princeton University’s Program in Theater partners with Fordham University, Purchase College, and University of Massachusetts-Amherst to create A Passage in Relief, a virtual theatrical response to Naomi Wallace’ play One Flea Spare. Wallace’s play, about strangers quarantining together during London’s 17th-Century Great Plague, provoked this wild artistic departure about our own communities’ social iniquities, abuses of power, classism, racism, fake science, and questions about who can afford to survive a plague and the boundaries of gender and the body. The production, devised, written and performed by the students and led by Princeton faculty member Elena Araoz, will be performed live. Audiences will be invited to view and contribute to a living online chat board starting a week before the performances.
