Rachel Bonds’ Five Mile Lake is a stunning new play by an astonishingly talented writer. With exquisite care, Bonds paints a moving portrait of a group of young people, yearning to make the right choices—and facing the choices they have already made—as they journey into their thirties in a rapidly transforming world. Directed by Emily Mann, Five Mile Lake continues McCarter’s tradition of introducing major new plays and writers to the American stage (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, The Convert, and Anna in the Tropics). Don’t miss this funny, tender, and heart-wrenching play about those who stay, and those who go away.
