Created by Michael Bigelow Dixon and Brooke Jennett and conceived by Jon Jory, this collection of 40 monologues and a few dialogues explores what's in the hearts and minds of college students today

The multicultural ensemble questions everything they encounter: social justice and gender identity, self-awareness and relationship boundaries, future prospects

And roommate etiquette!

What emerges is a humorous and heartbreaking portrait of a new generation struggling with higher education's promise of "personal transformation"

The play begins with matriculation and ends with graduation and is structured in three acts ...

Act One - Great Expectations - focus on encounters with new friends, financial aid, antidepressants, homework, sex, sleep deprivation and courses in physics and math

Act Two - Paradise Lost - features parties, budding and broken relationships, unexpected encounters with race and religion, sexual orientation and hitting rock bottom

Act Three - Metamorphoses - portrays students emerging from four years of challenge and change with surprising insights, political convictions and plans for a scary, uncertain future

This mix of serious and comedic monologues captures the difficulty of the search for self-discovery and community-building

And while the monologues convey the sense that students often feel alone in their quest for great success or simply survival, the ensemble itself presents a very different truth ...

At least they're alone together
