Harold and Maude
January 23- February 8, 2015
Written by Colin Higgins, Harold and Maude is a hilarious dark comedy about a young man obsessed with death and his romantic relationship with an eccentric 79-year-old woman. The movie (also written and produced by Higgins), on which the play is based is a cult classic. Harold, who stages elaborate fake suicides, meets Maude at a stranger’s funeral. Her offbeat, bright personality contrasts with Harold’s morbidity and as they say, opposites attract.
A New England Repertory Company production, Harold and Maude is directed by Mike Kiernan and stars Petr Favazza and Beth Goldman in the titular roles.
