With Friends Like These is an evening of world premiere one-acts by local playwrights. Way Back is by Sara Adelman. Mia's worlds are colliding when, on the eve of her 24th birthday, her close law school friend meets her best friend from childhood. The celebration turns into a tense examination of loyalty, identity, memory, and the ties that bind. In Dan Stroeh's 10 a.m. Signing, Alex, a prematurely successful journalist, grudgingly returns to his Manhattan apartment from a cross-country backpacking trip to find his bedroom turned into an office and his belligerent roommate Tyke hyped-up over a sure-to-fail magazine venture; sure-to-fail, that is, unless Tyke and his partner Isaac convince Alex to get involved.
