The Four of Us traces the fraught relationship between a young playwright named David and a young novelist named Benjamin. They meet at Musicians' Camp when they're 17, spend a few months together in Prague in their early 20s, and end up pursuing divergent destinies back in New York. What appears to be a simple "buddy story" turns into an Escher-like exploration of the relative value of fame and friendship.
Director Cynthia Meier says, "The Four of Us is a fascinating play both because of its simple truths and complex structure. I am also delighted to be working with two absolutely wonderful young actors on what is the perfect script for them. Our audience will be similarly charmed."
