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.

performances. I found myself truly moved." - Oscar
