What happens as time passes? We age, we grow, hopefully into better, well adapted and magnanimous members of society. And we may sometimes revisit the places from which we came. Most of us longed to leave the small towns, and the stuffy high school we suffered four years of eternity in. And then strike out to a place where no one knows your name, anonymity is welcomed, perhaps. And we extend our family, grow our awareness. And soon, perhaps, 50 years pass. And we return to the high school to the people, to the relationships that we left as children.
Allan Brody wrote a play about this. The Midvale High School 50th Reunion. And The Public Theatre in Lewiston is producing it. It opens May 4 and runs through May 13.
