THE Graduate is the next production being put on by the Barn Theatre in Welwyn Garden City.

SIMON and Garfunkel famously sung Mrs. Robinson, from the soundtrack to the film The Graduate.

The movie tells the story of Benjamin Braddock, played by Dustin Hoffman, a recent college student with no well-defined aim in life who is seduced by an older woman, with Anne Bancroft playing the role of Mrs Robinson.

The stage version of The Graduate by Terry Johnson is the next offering at The Barn Theatre in WGC.

Directed by Godfrey Marriott, the West End and Broadway hit plays at the Handside Lane theatre from Friday, October 12 to Saturday, October 20.

Tickets are on sale now for just £10.

There are performances each night at 8pm, with a matinee at 2.30pm on the second Saturday.

School groups pay only £5 per seat. Teachers interested in booking seats should contact the Barn’s education coordinator Cindy Lawford to find out about available workshops and talks on the play.
