1/8 CAN’T HARDLY WAIT
This Tuesday, January 8th, Play Club West returns with our first reading of 2013: the hilarious 1998 teen comedy, CAN’T HARDLY WAIT, by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont.
After the Huntington Hills High graduation ceremony, the fun gets underway at the graduation party where an assortment of jocks, geeks, prom queens, bimbos, headbangers, and nerdy misfits unload four years’ worth of emotional baggage at a house where the hostess loses control of her guests. Writer wannabe Preston Meyers has been in love with Amanda since the first time he saw her during their freshman year. His tormented infatuation with Amanda has intensified throughout high school and culminates at the party, where Preston must now seize this final opportunity to proclaim his love for her before he leaves the next day for Boston.
