Wrinkles in Our Clothing

One night after a party Andrew realizes that he has never truly lived. Christine finds her passion somewhere she never thought she could have it. These two young adults, making their way through college, realize that now is the time to decide how they will choose to live their lives. They face the challenges that most young adults face such as societal expectations, a parent’s ideal image of their child, and having the courage to take that first step. Although these two do not meet in the lives of their characters they appear to know each other in a few places throughout the play. This is a device to reflect the common ground of those who struggle with identity. They meet in an opening sequence of the play as a device to introduce the play as their story. Their lives are each affected by the same person. A person who cares about the lives of those around her, Janet.
