Abigail Breslin leads a harrowing tale of early sexual awakening
Academy Award-nominated young actress Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Signs , Zombieland and Scream Queens) makes her stage debut in Erica Schmidt's new coming of age play that explores teenage sexuality in the Eighties. Also helmed by Schmidt herself, this world premiere production is running for a limited time only, boasting a talented young cast that also features Isabelle Fuhrman, Joe Tippett and Alex Wolff. Taking place as a parallel storyline between the two girlfriends and two teenage guys as the objects of their affections, a summer of love turns on its head with painful realisations and truths about getting too sexual, too early.
Fourteen-year old Jenny (Breslin) and Emily (Fuhrman) have been best friends since forever, doing everything together. Now with an endless summer stretching out before them in South Carolina, they believe themselves ready to get involved with older boys. Emily sets her sights on her senior crush from the high school play (Wolff), whilst Jenny, more alarmingly, fixates on an older man she has spotted at her family's church (Tippett). What follows is a dark story of underage desire that unbiasedly deals with young fascination with sexual awakenings.
