EVENTS

Princeton University Women’s Field Hockey vs. Maryland – The Tigers take on the University of Maryland at the 1952 Stadium at Princeton University. Game starts at 6 p.m.

Screening of Senegalese film “Tey (Aujourd’hui)” -The Films for Thought: Graduate Student Films Series  at Princeton University presents the critically acclaimed film, “Tey (Aujourd’hui),” which follows a Senegalese man who has recently returned home to Dakar after living for many years in America, on his last day of life, at 4:30 p.m., Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture. The screening will be introduced by Wendy Belcher, associate professor of comparative literature and African American studies.

The Understudy at McCarter Theater  – Theresa Rebeck drama, directed by Adam Immerwahr. The show must go on—even when everything seems to be going hilariously wrong. It’s the understudy rehearsal for a hit new Broadway play, but the set technician is high, the cocky movie star doesn’t understand the script. The understudy is surprised to find that the stage manager is his jilted ex-fiancée. Backstage friction takes center stage in a comedy about art, celebrity, and the things we do for the business we love. Just another day in the life of an understudy. 7:30 p.m., Matthews Theatre, 91 University Place, Princeton. Tickets $25 and up. Through November 2.
