Rutgers/NJIT Theatre Program playwright, Oladayo Alade, will have her play featured this week at the New York Short Plays Festival as part of NY Summerfest. Alade developed her play, Operation Wonderboy, while taking NJIT’s Principles of Playwriting class last semester. Part of the course assignment was to submit work to a professional competition. Her play was immediately picked up for the festival.

With the help and support of the Joint Theatre Program, Alade put together a small production company made up of students and will be presenting the one act play at The Hudson Guild Theatre July 13, 14, and 16.
