This is the first play adaptation of the classic novel and cult film. Benjamin's got excellent grades, very proud parents and, since he helped Mrs. Robinson with her zipper, a fine future behind him. A cult novel, a classic film, a quintessential hit of the 1960s. Now Benjamin's disastrous sexual odyssey is brought vividly to life in this world stage production.
