Grinnell in London Internships

Grinnell-in-London currently offers up to fifteen slots for internships, up to three in the British parliament and up to twelve at-large. Because the number of students in our program who can serve as interns is regulated by the UK Border Agency, selection of students for internship slots is usually competitive. Selection is based on students' academic records, the viability of matching a student's interests with the kinds of internships available in London, and the suitability of a student's background for a proposed internship.

No Place to Go

Ethan Lipton and Orchestra will present No Place to Go—a “hilarious, irreverent ode to the unemployed” that won the Obie Award in 2012—at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, in the Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center Room 101. 

Steeped in American musical traditions ranging from blues and jazz to folk, No Place to Go reimagines the anxious reality of unemployment through the soulful musical stylings of Vito Dieterle (saxophone), Eben Levy (guitar) and Ian M. Riggs (bass). This Woody Allen-meets-Arthur Miller tale of workplace woe the fantasies and realities of joblessness with a sardonic but ultimately hilarious and comforting voice.

The first piece commissioned by Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre in New York, No Place to Go has been performed nationally and internationally at venues including the 92nd St. Y, Dartmouth College, and London’s Gate Theater. It was included in The New York Times’ 2012 list of “The Year’s Most Galvanizing Moments” in theatre and named one of the best plays of 2012 in the New York Post. Ethan Lipton and his orchestra were voted the best lounge act of 2009 in New York Magazine.

Pick up free tickets for this public performance at the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts box office beginning at noon Monday, Jan. 27. A limited number of tickets are also available beginning at noon Monday, Jan. 27, at the Pioneer Bookshop in downtown Grinnell.

This event is co-sponsored by Grinnell’s Public Events Series and by the Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations and Human Rights.
