Benjamin Braddock is a confused young man. Having spent four years achieving a brilliant scholastic record, upon graduation he finds himself adrift, uncertain about his future, disconnected from his purpose, and increasingly alienated from the upper class, suburban, 'plastic' world of his parents. Fighting panic and boredom, he is deeply conflicted but ultimately willing when Mrs Robinson, the unhappily married, alcoholic, and dangerously charasmatic wife of his father's business partner, tempts him into an affair. Benjamin's tenuous existence of lazy days and stolen nights falls apart when he falls in love... with Elaine, Mrs Robinson's upbeat, optimistic daughter.

Terry Johnson's stage adaption of The Graduate, based on the novel and the iconic 1967 film, is a bitterly hilarious dark comedy.
