The GraduateAuthor: Adapted by Terry Johnson
Based on the Novel by Charles Webb
Benjamin Braddock is a confused young man. Having spent four years achieving a brilliant
scholastic record, upon graduation he finds himself adrift, uncertain about his future,
disconnected from his purpose, and increasingly alienated from the upper-class, suburban,
“plastic” world of his parents. Fighting panic and boredom, he is deeply conflicted but
ultimately willing when Mrs. Robinson, the unhappily married, alcoholic, and dangerously
charismatic wife of his father’s business partner, tempts him into an affair.
