Saturday December 7, 2019
7:30 PM

"Desires of a Criminal," a Mercer County Community College (MCCC) student performance that will soon move to a national stage, will be presented for three nights only, Dec. 5-7, on MCCC's West Windsor Campus. "Desires of a Criminal, a Devised Theatrical Collage," a thought-provoking original play, will be performed at the college's Studio Theatre, adjacent to Kelsey Theatre on MCCC's West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. 

Entirely researched and crafted by the students from scratch, "Desires of a Criminal" is inspired by French playwright, poet, and novelist Jean Genet, who was a petty criminal in his youth and spent time in jail before being discovered by some well-known writers who lobbied for his release. According to MCCC Theatre, Dance, and Entertainment Technology Coordinator Jody Gazenbeek-Person, the production addresses issues regarding mass incarceration, and presents the message in a non-linear progression.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $14 for seniors and students. They may be purchased online at kelseytheatre.org or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at (609) 570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible. Free parking is available next to the theater.
