The play explores the many complications that can occur when young people fall head-over-heels in love. The Hope production is set in the late 1960s and early 1970s — a time of experimentation, rebellion and social change. The looks and the sounds of that period are being investigated to aid in the rendering of the play.
The production is co-directed by senior Elizabeth Dwyer of Ypsilanti and faculty member John Tammi.
