Set in the late 1950’s, David and Lisa is a play based on the classic film named by Time Magazine as the “Best American Film of 1962.”
The play follows David, a brilliant, handsome young man wracked by an intense psychosis, as he is taken to live and study at Berkeley Academy, a progressive school headed by the compassionate Dr. Alan Swinford who, along with his staff, dedicate themselves to watching over and treating severely troubled adolescents with respect rather than prejudice.
It is during his studies that David meets Lisa, a wildly fascinating girl haunted by troubles of her own. The play follows the unlikely love story that builds between a boy deathly afraid of physical touch and a girl controlled by two completely different identities, ultimately culminating in a message of hope and innocent love that comes to even those who may be written off as hopeless and helpless.
Join us as director Mary Kilpatrick brings theater-in-the-round to The Old Stone with a large cast of adults and adolescents from the Central Oregon community.
David and Lisa, a play by James Reach, is for everyone ages 9 to 90 and will have 10 performances on weekends between June 10 – 25.
Visit to secure tickets ahead of time, or the event calendar to see specific dates and times.
Produced by Samuel French, Inc.
