Poster for "The Graduate", part of the 2021 Pop Up Theatre Project

The Graduate

A staged reading.

Terry Johnson's adaptation of the classic 1960s film finds a young man, Benjamin Braddock, with excellent grades, very proud parents and a very bright future. However, since he helped Mrs. Robinson with her zipper, a fine future is behind him…

Benjamin's disastrous sexual odyssey is brought vividly to life in this reading of The Graduate.

Mature themes not suitable for children.

The Graduate is presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French Inc.
