NJ, March 29, 2012–Princeton Theological
Seminary’s Department of Speech Communication in Ministry will present Sidney
Kingsley’s play, The Patriots, on
Thursday through Saturday, April 12 through 14 at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, April 15
at 3:00 p.m. It will be presented in the Gambrell Room of Scheide Hall on the
Seminary campus at 64 Mercer Street in Princeton.
The Patriots examines the creation of a
new nation, a few years prior to the founding of the Seminary in 1812. It
demonstrates what a volatile cultural landscape existed at the turn of the
nineteenth century for our nation’s leaders and the founders of the Seminary.
The play has
been adapted for the stage by director Robert Lanchester, the Seminary’s
assistant in speech. Seminary students make up the cast. The production is open
to the public and free of charge, but seats are limited and must be reserved in
advance. For reservations and/or information, contact Marija DiViaio at
its Bicentennial in 2012, Princeton is the largest Presbyterian seminary in the
country, with more than 500 students in six graduate degree programs.
