As timely as it was when the book was first published in 1967, The Outsiders is a dramatic coming of age story about a teen gang growing up in rural Oklahoma. The poor Greasers are constantly at odds with the Socials, a rival group. When Greasers Ponyboy and Johnny get into a brawl that ends with deadly consequences, they are forced into hiding. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with their other Greaser friends, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends. Author S. E. Hinton was only 15 years old when she began writing this story inspired by her own high school, and thus the story is very compelling for young teens. The story was re-imagined in a well-loved Francis Ford Coppola film in 1983. You will be blown away by this powerful story in Sandy Spring Friends School's Upper School production. The play does have some stage violence and deals with adult topics. For reference, the film was rated PG. Admission is free for students and there is a $10 suggested donation for adults. No advance ticket sales. Open Seating. Feel free to email the director, Julie Borsetti, with any questions.
