What I Did Last Summer

What I Did Last Summer

By A.R.Gurney

Directed by Steve Russell



A.R. Gurney is perhaps one of the best American playwrights of the late twentieth century. His wit and insights into ordinary lives are penned with a sensitivity to common language, lean construction and rhythms of language that captivate the audience. He creates characters who seem like familiar friends and family.


In this memory play, set on the summer shores of Lake Erie in 1945, he invites the audience to return to simpler times and to recall those important formative experiences of youth. Young Charlie is torn between two women while his father is away fighting World War Two. His mother and sister don't know quite what to do with him. Should he follow his mentor, a social outsider, or be a dutiful son? His friends Bonny and Ted can't help him decide, until one fateful night when his rash behaviour has serious consequences.


This is a perfect summer play. Filled with humour, tension and nostalgia, it will have audiences sharing their own memories of important influences and events in their own lives.
