About This Show

The Stamford Center for the Arts presents Is There Life After High School? Were you Student Body President? Cheerleader captain? Or the girl nobody asked to the prom? Or a guy nobody wanted to eat lunch with? These are some of the questions raised in Is There Life After High School? After interviewing hundreds of people, obscure and famous, successful and unsuccessful, after reading countless magazine articles, books, and scholarly treatises, after listening to stacks of 45 rpm records, watching television and movies, and after attending all manner of reunions (from a fifth to a fiftieth!), Ralph Keyes has come to the conclusion that Kurt Vonnegut was right — high school is “closer to the core of the American Experience than anything else I can think of.” Ralph Keyes probes the meaning of those memories and uncovers the depths of feeling behind the exposed high school myths, traces patterns of success and failure, analyzes the roles played in our lives by the geeks, jocks, cheerleaders and bookworms we once knew. (Does it make anyone feel better to know that Henry Kissinger was called “a little fatso”?)
