Hysterically poignant, When We Have Gone Astray provides an entertaining look at the modern-day struggles of three twenty-something New Yorkers in the current economic recession. In the play, Ira Trask (played by Brandon Walker), a lonely and struggling actor, decides that New Year’s Eve, 2008 will be his last day in New York City...and what a better way to break in the new year than with a holiday hooker. Only one problem: she turns out to be an old flame from his childhood, Cassie (played by Heather Lee Harper), who has just been turned out onto the street. Cassie and Ira's unpredictable reunion is mediated by Keith (played by Joseph Mancuso), a trust fund baby who now delivers pizzas after losing all his money to Ponzi- schemer Bernie Madoff. During the course of the evening, Cassie, Ira and Keith all humorously struggle to face the many compromises they must make during this troubling American recession.

"They gave a full out performance. And the acting was terrific. Kaitlin Colombo has coached her three actors into giving extremely truthful, engaging performances. I found myself truly moved." - Oscar E. Moore, Talk Entertainment
