Tears of Rage
You won't want to miss this exciting new play by the author of Mrs.California. Mimi, Anne, Lou, Monk and Petey are best friends from high school, fresh out of college and thrust into the world at a time of great turmoil and confusion. It's the summer of '67 and the old "gang of five" is back together again — to say goodbye to Petey, who has dropped out of Yale to volunteer for duty in Vietnam. Though some of his friends are vehemently opposed to the war, his girlfriend, Mimi, and his parents see no reason to stop him from doing what he feels is the right thing. Petey's departure is the first personal contact the others will have with a war they thought would never touch them; now it will irrevocably change their lives.
Through the eyes of the characters in her play, Baizley gives us a fresh and original perspective on the Vietnam era. Drawing on her own personal experiences, she has crafted a tender, funny and profoundly moving portrait of a generation in chaos.
