LAST SUMMER

LAST SUMMER

8 M, 8 F (young actors)
90 minutes
August, 1987: the last summer of camp for sixteen hopeful soon-to-be ninth-graders.  Things are not going as planned–it rains every day, cabin-mates are fighting, and the counselors are nowhere to be found.  When a prank goes wrong, it ruins the dance and any hope of a half-decent Color War.  This was supposed to be the best summer, so now what?  A play about scheduling your first kiss, trying to be the MVP before the competition even begins, and finding the possibility of joy in the worst of circumstances.

Produced by Poly Prep CDS, January 2009.
