Richard Rodgers Developmental Reading at the York Theatre.
Produced by San Francisco Arts in San Francisco, CA and at the 2007 New York Musical Theatre Festival in NYC.
17 year-old, Adam is frantically trying to memorize Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken” to recite in his English class, but because he didn’t take his Ritalin this morning, he can’t get much farther than the first line, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood…” before an amazing yellow wood begins to grow in his high school. Desperate to prove he’s beaten ADD, he struggles to memorize the poem even as it begins to take on a life of its own, pulling him deeper and deeper into the yellow wood, where he must decide which road he will travel.
