The campers are all finally asleep, and the lake is getting quiet. Have a beer; make a smore; tell a scary story. Figure out what you're going to have to do in the morning to keep camp fun and safe without letting the kids find out about...well, you've seen the news. I just got a push notification--they're getting closer.
Following a group of camp counselors trying to mold the leaders of tomorrow when tomorrow is looking bleaker and bleaker, The Grown-Ups explores the traditions that change us, what it takes for us to change them, and how to change yourself when you're hopelessly, tragically not prepared for this.
Performed at a secret location in North Brooklyn. (Ignore the embedded map, it's not accurate.)

*The team of artists making The Grown-Ups all lived and quarantined together under one roof during this pandemic. We still do, but as the markers of pandemic life disappear, it feels like that means something different. We're getting used to that. And as we do, we're making this play.
