Benjamin Braddock is a confused young man. Having spent four years achieving a brilliant scholastic record, upon graduation he finds himself adrift, uncertain about his future, disconnected from his purpose and increasingly alienated from the suburban 'plastic' world of his parents. Fighting panic and boredom he is deeply conflicted but ultimately willing when Mrs Robinson, the unhappily married, alcoholic and dangerously charismatic wife of his father's business partner tempts him into an affair. Benjamin's tenuous existence of lazy days and stolen nights falls apart when he falls in love - with Elaine, Mrs Robinson's daughter.

Terry Johnson's stage adaptation of The Graduate based on the novel and the iconic 1967 film is a bitter but hilarious comedy.

Apart from Ben & Elaine who must be young and in their early 20s, ages are flexible but appropriate to the roles.

There may well be doubling up and the need for additional wedding guests.
