The Alternative Theatre Festival is a collection of five short plays written and directed by students at the University of Pennsylvania. The shows feature themes such as the pervasiveness of headline news, unrequited love, mental illness, loneliness, infertility, and finding oneself. Come see it!




The Alternative Theater Festival is an exploration of performance featuring student written and directed pieces. The shows give young playwrights a chance to showcase their emerging talents. The five shows featured this year are: "Sessions," a piece about a young woman who is struggling to find herself, and turns a therapist in hopes of assistance. "Breaking News" deals with the use of news media as well as social networking in reporting events. "In Many Ways" is about a young woman coping with her infertility. "Artificial Intelligence" explores a man's life and how he uses low-grade technology as an unexpected companion to combat his loneliness. Finally, "Ur-play" looks at unrequited, forbidden love in an unconventionally narrated way. These shows cover a full spectrum of emotions and resonate with everyone, young or old.


About our company:

iNtuitons Experimental Theatre is the University of Pennsylvania's only student-run experimental theatre group. Founded in 1980, iNtuitons' comes from two words: intuition and automaton. It was chartered to "attract people with diverse artistic interests and in order to provide an outlet for creative people whose ideas are too Classical or Avant-Garde to be supported by existing groups." Take this chance to experience some of our work!
