These days, we hang on to people and friendships through the impressions we get from their online profiles. Yet, over the years, people seldom share any deep and personal changes through social media. Allen Barton explores the collision of these relationships in his WORLD PREMIERE dark comedy YEARS TO THE DAY at the Beverly Hills Playhouse.
Two 40-something men, who have been friends for decades but only cursorily in touch via social media over the past four years, finally get together for coffee. But their long anticipated “face to face” meeting reaps surprising consequences now that truthful and dramatic changes in each of their lives are revealed. Can this long time relationship survive?
“After meeting an old friend, four years to the day from our last get together, it struck me that though we knew what phones and computers we were using, we had no clue about each other’s lives, or what had truly happened to us in those years.” – Allen Barton (Playwright)
