Event Description

Set against the backdrop of post-9/11 America, three best friends are forced to confront the realities of adulthood and the disillusion of escapism. Johnny, “the Jesus of Suburbia,” leaves his hometown to explore the big city but falls victim to drugs and anger. Tunny also leaves home but doesn’t find the fulfillment he seeks and chooses to join the army. Meanwhile, Will stays behind to be with his pregnant girlfriend but instead becomes more and more sedentary and apathetic about the world around him. Told through the rock songs of Green Day and the narratives of these three young men, this musical challenges the audience with the truths of society and the struggles that ultimately stem from within.
