The GraduateThe Graduate
Adapted By Terry Johnson
based on the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Caulder Willingham & Buck Henry

September 1-23, 2006

Directed by Rhonda Clark

Once a cult novel and still a quintessential coming-of-age film of the Sixties, now the graduate's disastrous sexual odyssey is brought vividly to life on stage.

Recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock is morose. He sees his parents and their friends as "grotesques" and cannot abide the thought of a future where he cares about "plastics" and defines himself by the size of his house and swimming pool. Out of boredom coupled with desperation, Benjamin falls into bed with a friend of his parents, Mrs. Robinson, but by the end of the summer finds himself falling in love with Mrs. Robinsonís daughter.

Adapted for the stage by Terry Johnson and based on the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry, the story of Benjaminís quandary is as witty as ever. Set in 1964, the play includes many characters and plot elements that people love in the film, but offers a fresh approach, with some different scenes not found in the film version.
