Synopsis: This 1977 play, the first by noted American playwright Wendy Wasserstein, opens on a group of five graduates of Mount Holyoke College meeting for a reunion six years after their graduation. As they reminisce, a series of flashbacks to their senior year begins. Through following them through their senior year, we glimpse their journeys to find themselves while balancing society's shifting expectations of women as experienced by many women not just at this point in history, but today as well.
Everyone who auditions will receive a complimentary ticket to any CCT production this season!
