The First Day Of School

By Billy Aronson
September 22 – November 7, 2009
opens September 26
Directed by Chris Smith

What exactly are the parents up to when their kids go off to school? When a group of devoted parents decide to make their children’s first day of school a “first” of their own, they turn their quiet little lives upside-down and give a whole new meaning to the term “physical education.”

This hilarious new comedy from Billy Aronson, credited for the original concept for the musical RENT and a writer for MTV’s Beavis and Butthead, takes what may seem on the surface to be a “soccer-Mom sex farce, and creates a scathing satire of the spiritual poverty in our culture and our terror of true intimacy.
