Ars Nova presents Holy Cross Sucks!, a comedy about the tragedy of high school, written and performed by Rob Nash, and directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun.
The solo performance is a comic journey through those unforgettable years of high school, starring Rob Nash as an ensemble cast that includes "the virgin," "the homo," "the punk," "the fat kid," and "the slut." Welcome back to the 80's and the formative years that traumatized us all! In the spirit of such teen film classics as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Holy Cross Sucks follows six friends as they navigate those painful, life-defining, and often humiliating years of high school. We're never as vulnerable and as vicious, as beautiful and as ugly, as idealistic and apathetic, as vain and as humble as when we're adolescents. Playing a full cast of beloved and reviled characters, Nash explores these paradoxes with biting humor, insight, and a killer soundtrack.
