The Son Also Rises explores a group of friend’s rise into adulthood. Jake is a nineteen-year-old on a perpetual gap year from Princeton still trying to figure out who he wants to be. When his high school buddy Josh comes to visit and is introduced to Jake’s new friends: the raucous Will and alluring Andy, the status quo that they all hold so dear gets turned on its head. Will they keep it together long enough to get to the Pampalana Music Festival?

The Son Also Rises was featured in The Blank Theater’s 2014 Young Playwrights Festival and at the Adams Pool Theater (Harvard College) in 2015.
