Roundabout Theatre Company's new production of Simon Gray's comedy-drama The Common Pursuit began May 4 at RTC's Off-Broadway home at the Laura Pels Theatre. Moisés Kaufman directs the piece featuring Kristen Bush, Kieran Campion, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe and more.



According to Roundabout, "The Common Pursuit chronicles 20 years in the lives of six friends, from their ambitious collegiate days to their surprising discoveries in the real world. Idealistic Cambridge student Stuart Thorne enlists some of his classmates to help him launch a new literary magazine. With the pursuit of great literature as their common thread, they become lifelong friends. But when damaging secrets crop up and business demands creep in, Stuart is faced with some unexpected decisions. Delightfully witty and remarkably poignant, The Common Pursuit is a captivating journey from who we think we are...to who we turn out to be."

The piece, in addition to Bush, Campion and Near-Verbrugghe, features Josh Cooke, Jacob Fishel and Tim McGeever.
