Lucy Honeychurch is on her first trip to Italy with her cousin Charlotte when she meets the intellectually challenging but socially unacceptable George Emerson. They share a passionate kiss, but Charlotte crushes the affair. Lucy later becomes engaged to the more acceptable, rather priggish Cecil Vyse, which seems to seal her fate. But back in England, a series of coincidences bring George into Lucy's social circle once again. Will she have the strength to choose courage, truth, and love over convention? An inventive adaptation of E. M. Forster's classic novel about the consequences and rewards of being true to one's real nature.

Published Reviews

"The tone is pitch-perfect -- winsome and droll but rooted in social realities... this show feels literate but never stuffy; intellectually stimulating but vulnerably human; wide-eyed but understanding."

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"Love and adventure and the need to trust one's instincts are at the heart of Forster's deceptively deep story. And there is more than a little mystery in how people react to the stirring of their souls -- a mystery that this production captures with easy panache, playfulness and keen intelligence. Youth and death are in continual tension here, yet that natural balance is captured with an almost feathery touch."

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times
