9780141190242: Modern Classics The Graduate (Penguin Modern Classics)

As far as Benjamin Braddock's parents are concerned, his future is sewn up. Now he has graduated from college, he will go to Yale or Harvard, get a good job and enjoy a life of money, cocktails and pool parties in the suburbs, just like them. For Benjamin, however, this isn't quite enough. When his parents' friend Mrs Robinson, a formidable older woman, strips naked in front of him and they begin an affair, it seems he might have found a way out. That is, until her daughter Elaine comes into the picture, and things get far more complicated.

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.

About the Author:

Charles Webb was born in 1939 in San Francisco. The Graduate was his first novel; since then he has published Love, Roger, The Marriage of a Young Stockbroker, The Abolitionist of Clark Gable Place and Elsinor.
