Originally Produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival Theatre
HAIR is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark, A Concord Theatricals Company www.tamswitmark.com
Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifist principles and risking his life.
Hair is a co-production of Theatre Tallahassee and New Stage Theatreworks and not part of Theatre Tallahassee's season.
