About the play
This is the story about the suicidal 19 year old boy Harold who finally learns how to truly live when he meets the delightful, energetic, wacky " octogenarian " Maude!
Harold is the proverbial poor rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts.
His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion), is what saves him and what captivates us.
"Harold and Maude" is a feel good comedy that celebrates friendship and the love of life, in a very unconventional way."
