The Institute, Coming of Age during the Vietnam War, is not just another play. It’s two acts span 45 years as its script calls on all seven cast members to play multiple roles over the course of the story.
Four male actors begin the play as their characters at their 45th class reunion at The Institute. As they do what people do at reunions — tell stories about the old days — they revert to play their younger selves. Watch them mature from 14-year-olds to 18-year-olds to men in their 60s!
See them also take on additional roles as faculty members at The Institute! The three women in the cast play the wives at the reunion but then they too take on added roles of other characters at The Institute.
“We have never challenged a cast in a 2nd Act Players production to show their acting chops like we do with this script,” says 2nd Act Creative Director John N. Frank. He should know, he’s acting in this one himself!
