- Benjamin, I am not trying to seduce you!
- I know that.
- Would you like me to seduce you?
Benjamin returns from college to high expectations of a bright future in aspirational, middle-class America. The only trouble is, the thought of that future makes him sick to his stomach. When he meets another disillusioned soul in his parents’ best friend Mrs Robinson, their relationship takes on a thrillingly destructive force that threatens everyone’s future happiness.
In this hit West End play, unforgettable characters from Charles Webb’s novel and the Oscar-winning film are brought to life in this hilarious comedy and moving coming of age story. Featuring a classic soundtrack, including Wouldn’t It Be Nice by The Beach Boys, Everybody’s Talkin’ by Harry Nilsson and, of course, Mrs Robinson and The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel, The Graduate is brought to life by acclaimed, multi-award winning director Lucy Bailey in the first major revival since its West End premiere.
