Synopsis

Originally titled Cancer, this play from the author of Split and Loose Ends explores the rootless 60’s generation of free-love and protest. Five male college seniors and their housemates have no purpose in their lives. They march against the staus quo and taunt the “pigs”. One feels genuine emotion at his mother’s death from cancer, one romance dies and another is aborted. Ultimately, they realize their lives are as empty as the establishment they protest so vehemently against.
