The Pavilion

August 29 - September 2, 2017
Lab Theatre in the Booker T. Washington Building
Written by Craig Wright
Directed by Robert Richmond

Hailed by critics as an "Our Town" for our time, "The Pavilion" is by turns poetic and comic, romantic and philosophical. Peter returns to his twenty-year high-school reunion with dreams of winning back Kari, the girl he left behind after an unexpected pregnancy ended their relationship. Standing in Peter’s way is Kari’s husband and bitter-as-ever resentment. As the night progresses, a virtuosic Narrator, playing a host of characters, leads Peter and Kari to face the consequences of choices made long ago. 

 

... a seamless blend of humor and pathos, philosophy and emotion.
