Iconic characters from Charles Webb’s novel and the classic film are brought to life in this hilarious black comedy and moving coming-of-age story.
Benjamin returns from college to high expectations of a bright future in aspirational, middle-class America. The only trouble is, the thought of that future makes him sick to his stomach. When he meets another disillusioned soul in his parents’ best friend Mrs Robinson, their illicit relationship takes them on a thrillingly destructive course that threatens everyone’s future happiness.
Featuring a memorable soundtrack of sixties songs, don’t miss this stylish new production by acclaimed director Lucy Bailey.
