9780140026931: Graduate

'For twenty- one years I have been shuffling back and forth between classrooms and libraries. Now you tell me what the hell it's got me.' That's how Benjamin Braddock talked when he came down from university. Somehow it didn't seem to be what his father expected from a college education, and everyone was really appalled when Ben raped Mrs Robinson (that was her story anyway) and ran off with her daughter in the middle of her wedding to someone else... a brilliantly sordid tale of a young man's search for identity and a portrayal of the worst-behaved yet most sympathetic anti-hero of the day.

From the Inside Flap:

An American classic adapted for the stage, starring Kathleen Turner as Mrs. Robinson and Matthew Rhys as Benjamin Braddock. A fresh-faced college grad returns home, diploma in hand, to seek an answer to that age old question: "Now what?" Lacking any clear career path, he falls prey to the original "cougar," the predatory Mrs. Robinson, wife of his father's business partner. But it's Mrs. Robinson's daughter who captures his heart.

Includes and interview with the star of The Graduate, screen legend Kathleen Turner.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring:

Kathleen Turner as Mrs. Robinson

Matthew Rhys as Benjamin Braddock

Bruce Davison as Mr. Braddock

John Getz as Mr. Robinson

Jamison Jones as Hotel Clerk and others

Devon Sorvari as Elaine Robinson

Linda Purl as Mrs. Braddock and others

Adapted for the stage by Terry Johnson, based on the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry. Directed by John Rubinstein. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
