Wendy Wasserstein's debut work took Broadway by storm in 1977. Comprised of a collage of interrelated scenes, the action begins with a reunion, six years after graduation, of five close friends and classmates at Mount Holyoke College. They compare notes on their activities since leaving school and then, in a series of flashbacks, we see them in their college days and learn of the events, some funny, some touching, some bitingly cynical, that helped to shape them.

Wasserstein's 20-somethings are much like young women today - they are funny and smart, they laugh and discuss relationships, sex and their place in the world. This type of story was unprecedented in the ‘70s and offered a reflection on the cultural transformation around women and their place in society taking place at that time. Visiting this text 40 years later serves as a barometer for how we have and have not progressed.

Directed by Brianne Beatrice.
