Peter Pan Syndrome on Stage: WC Drama Department Presents Boys' Life, November 2, 3, and 4

Chestertown, MD, October 30, 2006— Washington College's Drama Department presents Boys' Life, a senior thesis directed by Greg Schaefer, written by Howard Korder, November 2, 3, and 4, at 8 p.m., in the College's Reid Basement. Reservations are required. For show information, call 410-778-7835 or e-mail drama_tickets@washcoll.edu.

Why do men do what they do? Will they ever grow up? Howard Korder's Pulitzer Prize nominated Boys' Life explores these questions and themes of love and friendship as it follows the lives of friends, Jack, played by senior Harry Wright; Don, portrayed by junior Tim Helmer; and Phil, depicted by junior Phil Doccolo. Through a variety of hilarious, fast-paced scenes, the twenty something college buddies struggle through life, love, and, of course, the relationships with their female counterparts. Rounding out the cast in a variety of comic roles, the ensemble includes: junior Juliana Schoettler, freshman Liz Murphy, sophomore Mary Lide, senior Keighty McClallen, freshman Annabelle Shore, and sophomore Mike Golze.

"People my age will really be able to relate to this story and these characters," says Director Greg Schaefer, "As college students, we are at a very intimidating time in our lives, and this play allows us to sit back and watch characters going through these very real, very personal struggles, that so many of us are about to face. Anyone who's ever been a man, or ever had a relationship with a man, will definitely identify."
