Play: The Graduate

Postby Chorlton Player » Fri Sep 25, 2009 9:36 pm

'The Graduate'
By Terry Johnson, directed by Barry Pritchard.

Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th of October.

Terry Johnson's award-winning stage version of the cult sixties novel and film comes to the suburbs of South Manchester in our next production.

You'll probably be familiar with the satirical coming-of-age comedy that became an emotional touchstone for an entire generation: Benjamin Braddock, a confused college graduate, is pulled in myriad of directions by family, friends, and associates just days after receiving his degree. Seduced by the older Mrs. Robinson, Ben has an affair with the married woman even as he falls for her daughter, Elaine. However, Ben and Elaine's attempts at romance are threatened by the spiteful rage of Mrs. Robinson, who is determined to keep the two apart.

Johnson's script brings together strands from both the book and film to create his own rendition - to which we then add our usual unique interpretation!

The show will be staged at the Church Hall on St Werburgh’s Road, Chorlton M21 0TL (take care with SatNav and Google maps, they can direct you to the wrong place a couple of streets away...).

Doors open at 7.10pm each evening, with the curtain up at 7.30pm.

Tickets: £6.00 / £4.00 concessions, available on the door.
