Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
A full family play about a teenage romance. Discouraged by parents, the young lovers run away. We see the distraught parents, and we see the youngsters trying to cope, to get jobs, to live in a world beyond their means and experience. And final capitulation in the recognition scene. So real it makes you shiver.
