    Synopsis: 

    In the middle of life, sometimes we find ourselves where we don’t want to be – what do we do? With a masterful touch, Craig Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated comedy, The Pavilion, leads us deep into the heart of this question. Hailed by critics as an “an Our Town for our time,” "The Pavilion" brings us into a beautifully rendered world that is funny, heartbreaking, and most of all, life-affirming.

    ‘The Pavilion,’ a Class Reunion Drama, at Barrow Group Theater

    Laura Collins-Hughes

    June 16, 2015: To have survived adolescence is to wish for a do-over, the chance to take another crack at some fundamental, inescapable decision made so badly the first time around. In Craig Wright’s stardust-streaked comic romance, “The Pavilion” (2000) — directed by Lee Brock and Alyson Schacherer in a tantalizing revival at the Barrow Group — that’s true even if you happen to be one half of the cutest couple from the Class of 1981. When Peter (a charismatic, rock-solid Dusty Brown) arrives at his 20th high school reunion in Pine City, Minn., he is clutching a bouquet of pink and white flowers meant for Kari (a dryly funny Julie Voshell). In theory, the two of them might still be pretty adorable together. But she would like him to leave, please, and can you blame her? At 17, in love with him, she got pregnant and he swiftly skipped town, off to college and a big-city life without her. Now Peter is nagged by the certainty that she was his one true chance for happiness, and Kari is grimly married to a golf pro named Hans. Perfectly decent guy — not really his fault that she can’t stand him.
