South Coast Repertory to Present World Premiere of REUNION, 3/9-30
Memories aren't always reliable as three high school buddies try to reconnect after a high school reunion. The complex nature of male friendship is explored in South Coast Repertory's world premiere of Reunion by Gregory S Moss. The show runs March 9-30, on the Julianne Argyros Stage. Adrienne Campbell-Holt directs. Tickets are available online: www.scr.org.
It's been 25 years since three men last saw each other at their graduation party; and now, after their class reunion it's time to get wasted and relive the fun. Reverting back to their childhood names-Maxie, Petie, Mitchie-these three friends fall back into their old ways as they reminisce over girls and misadventures. As their whirlwind of fun and games takes a turn, they realize how painful the past can be and how hard apologies come.
When writing Reunion, Gregory S Moss wanted to look at the fluidity of friendship. "It was a desire to explore how friendships based in youth and high school evolves over time when we revisit them." He hopes audiences look back and "reflect on their own high school connections and how those friendships helped shape them."
