About the Play:

The Great God Pan is a full-length drama by Amy Herzog. The play centers on an encounter between two childhood friends who have not seen each other for over 25 years. When one reveals a hidden secret from the past, the well-ordered world of the other begins to unravel and his life will never be the same again.

The Great God Pan is a complex study of the ways in which a tragic event affects our lives and the lives of those around us. Jamie's life in Brooklyn seems just fine: a beautiful girlfriend, a budding journalism career, and parents who live just far enough away. But when a possible childhood trauma comes to light, lives are thrown into a tailspin. Evocative, discerning, and unswervingly sincere, The Great God Pan explores the questions of what is lost and what is won when we are exposed to potentially life-changing truths?

The Great God Pan premiered in 2012 Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons Mainstage Theater. Since then the play has been successfully staged at several professional theatres across North America, and has been mounted by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.

Cast: 4 women, 3 men
