Set in a small-town during a 20th high school reunion, this funny, thought-provoking play explores the sometimes overwhelming question of " What If ." What if we could go back in time and take another path? If only we had that second chance to make amends. The Pavilion is a gloriously poetic theatrical treat that shows the dramas of ordinary lives into the patchwork pattern of the universe.

“It's a rare occasion to work on such a well-written script as The Pavilion.” Michael Driscoll, the Director adds, “ A play that makes you laugh, think and have your emotions moved to tears is, to me at least, the perfect play and one that will warm your heart on a cold January day.”

Hailed by critics as an "OUR TOWN for our time" this play is by turns poetic and comic, romantic and philosophical and in 2000 received a Pulitzer nomination. It was also nominated for the American Theatre Critics Association Best New Play and a 2005-2006 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.
