Ordinary People

By Nancy Gilsenan

Directed by Tracy Walker

April 11th - 27th, 2014

Conrad Jarrett had an older brother named Buck, and now Buck is gone. What’s left of young Conrad’s family, with his successful, well-intentioned father and his beautiful, organized and remote mother, is in terrible jeopardy, as is Conrad himself. They are all “ordinary people” and each is fighting a hard battle. This play goes to the essence of a young man, his friends and family, their relationships and survival. This full-length play is an extraordinary opportunity for your cast, as each role has a rich texture and purpose that will challenge and stretch your actors. A critic from The New York Times summed up, “The anxiety, despair and joy that is common to every human experience … if Conrad and his family are ordinary people, why then so are we all.”
