Synopsis: The Play: "Just one word: plastics." "Are you here for an affair?" These lines and others became cultural touchstones as the 1960s youth rebellion seeped into the California upper middle-class. Mentally adrift the summer after graduating from college, suburbanite Benjamin Braddock would rather float in his parents' pool than follow adult advice about his future. But the exhortation of family friend, Mr. Robinson, to seize every possible opportunity inspires Ben to accept an offer of sex from Mrs. Robinson, his wife. To make matters more exciting, add daughter, Elaine Robinson, into the mix and once Ben falls in love with her, the house of cards begins to fall.

WE NEED MEN ON THIS ONE!!!

Gentlemen, we have many wonderful women coming out for the show and you will want to be part of it!
