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 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 charismatic 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 daughter.

Terry Johnson's stage adaptation of The Graduate based on the novel and the iconic 1967 film is a bitter but hilarious comedy.
