Tony Award® nominee Moisés Kaufman (33 Variations, I Am My Own Wife) directs celebrated playwright Simon Gray's sharply comedic tale about the promises of youth and the compromises of adulthood. The Common Pursuit chronicles twenty years in the lives of six friends, from their ambitious collegiate days to their surprising discoveries in the real world.

Idealistic Cambridge student Stuart Thorne enlists some of his classmates to help him launch a new literary magazine. With the pursuit of great literature as their common thread, they become lifelong friends. But when damaging secrets crop up and business demands creep in, Stuart is faced with some unexpected decisions. Delightfully witty and remarkably poignant, The Common Pursuit  is a captivating journey from who we think we who we turn out to be. This is a limited engagement through July 29, 2012.

"If you've ever struggled to stay true-blue to your dreams and ambitions, you may recognize yourself in The Common Pursuit."
