"An elite university," a "not-to-be-missed party" and "a startling accusation" are elements in the play directed by Signature's associate artistic director Matthew Gardiner. Performances continue to March 25.
According to Signature, "This contemporary drama pushes the edges and embraces the harsh realities of the 'Me' generation. When the party of the year ends in the regret of a lifetime, one person will stop at nothing to salvage a future that is suddenly slipping away — and it is now every man for himself."
Really Really contains strong language and explicit situations. It's "for mature audiences only."
