Steven Levenson's Seven Minutes in Heaven is described as "a hilarious and emotionally raw play… that follows six high school freshman caught in the absurd, aching, terrible ecstasy of being young on a splintered night of dysfunctional party games, fumbling first kisses, ruined reputations, broken promises, and raw, raw fun. Set in 1995—after Kurt, before Monica—the play is charged with the manic exhilaration and stultifying terror of adolescence and explores familiar territory with a unique, brash sense of theatricality."
The evening begins at 6:30 PM.
