"It's not a disease Icabod, it's dating."

Among Friends and Clutter presents a montage of characters who experience the most important relationships in life: friends, family, and love.

Starting with seven classmates, the play explores what they imagine their lives will be, and shows what their lives eventually become. They grow, succeed, and sometimes fail.

Students love this play for its well-rounded characters and its wealth of comic and serious moments.
