Keen Company presents its final show of the 2006/07 season, the first major NYC revival of Robert Anderson's 1953 hit Broadway play Tea And Sympathy. Jonathan Silverstein directs.
A bittersweet tale of adolescence, masculinity, and conformity, the play concerns a lonely and misunderstood 17-year-old boy in a New England boarding school. Presumed to be gay, Tom is mercilessly ridiculed by both cruel classmates and callous instructors. As his world turns against him, his only kindness comes from the wife of his chief accuser.
There is an additional matinee on Saturday, April 14 at 2 PM.
