Can you ever go home again? It’s been twenty years since Peter and Kari stared at each other from across the dance floor of the old pavilion. Navigating through a sea of friends at their high school reunion (all played by a single omniscient Narrator), they make the painful journey to rediscover each other and what time may yet have in store for them. Often hailed as the Our Town of our day, The Pavilion is an award-winning chamber drama rife with poetry, humor, depth and romance.
"Mr. Wright's observations about the elusive nature of contentment and the merciless tread of time are plain and painful truths. His tale of what-might-have-beens doesn't need much adornment to seduce the unrepentant romantics in the audience, and even the sourest souls will be moved to hope."
