In this intimate coming-of-age drama, a naive adolescent named Elijah Berner succumbs to the harsh realities of attempting to recreate a moment – one he lost long ago – through film.
Themes ranging from mental illness and regret to loneliness, love, and the difficulties of accepting a less-than-ideal society are explored in this second original production by Beau Han Bridge and his newly established Midtwenties Theatre Society.
“I’m very excited to present Molly Misbegotten as Midtwenties Theatre Society’s third production and our first at the Havana Theatre,” says Bridge. “I’m also excited that this is our first-ever show to be collectively directed by multiple artists. In keeping with our mandate of highlighting conflicts that adolescents face today, we have chosen to present a character that struggles with mental illness induced by a contemporary society saturated in Instagram likes, emotional walls, loneliness, regret, and a fear of speaking up about one’s problems. In a world that strives to be idealistic and connected, we must be reminded of the individuals who struggle to accept the way things are; who feel excluded from majority trends; who can be dying in the face of a smile; whose silence may be the loudest cry for help; and for whom love and nostalgia may be, in the end, the only thing that can both save and destroy oneself in the worst of times.”
