Precisely 40 years ago, this first play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein spoke to a generation, and introduced theatergoers to Glenn Close and Meryl Streep, among others. The action flips between a reunion of close friends and classmates at Mount Holyoke College and their senior year, six years prior. This play invites us to look at Connecticut College’s own past, and to discover, for better and worse, what has changed, and what remains.

Directed by David Jaffe.

By Charles L. Mee

Directed by Kimberly Senior

A wild road trip through our American landscape—in a play made as one of America’s greatest artists, Robert
Rauschenberg, might have conceived it if he had been a playwright instead of a painter: a collage of people and places and music
and dancing, of love stories and picnics and business schemes and shootings and chicken jokes and golfing, and of the sheer exhilaration of living in a country where people make up their lives as they go.
