Auditions: Moonchildren


By Michael Weller
(who wrote the screenplay for the film version of Hair)

A serious comedy about College, Sex, Viet Nam, and Hamburgers--set in 1965/66. With goofy wit, the play portrays “the painful ways,” as Weller says, in which kids graduating from college “face their very uncertain futures” in a world that, like a lonely desert, conceals menacing patches of quicksand. This “period piece” not only reflects the political world of fifty years ago, it captures the fun and fears of college students everywhen.
