The Enclave

The Enclave, written by Arthur Laurents, will be performed December 13th - 15th, 2007, at 7:30 PM in the Little Theatre.
It is directed by Tesla Cariani and Zach Narva, with Phoebe DeGroot as set designer.

This thought-provoking play, written by acclaimed author Arthur Laurents, portrays a group of life-long friends and the change in their group dynamic as they are faced with the reality of change. Ben, the seemingly confirmed bachelor of the group, comes out as being gay while he and the three couples that constitute his closest friends are in the process of renovating a row a townhouses in New York city into their own sanctuary. However Ben's announcement to bring Wyman, his boyfriend of seven months with him to his home in the enclave challenges the group's utopian ideal. Each member, including his brother Bruno and best friend Cassie must face this new truth while inhibited by their individual prejudices regarding homosexuality and social hierarchies, something that proves to be impossible. Tension mounts between Ben and his friends as they disregard their friendships and berate Ben for his decision to bring Wyman along. The Enclave examines the boundaries of friendship, as well as the limits of tolerance and the reaction to change while retaining the light-hearted demeanor that reflects the strong relationships these friends once had.

The Enclave contains mature themes and language that may be inappropriate for younger audiences.
