Friends Like These


Friends Like These

Written by Gregory Crafts

Directed by Wendy Gough Soroka

Ticketing  link for Hollywood Fringe:

Garrett is an outsider with a secret. Constantly tortured in school and relegated to the social fringe, he just tries to get through each day as best as possible. The only bright spots in his life are his two friends, Bryan and Diz, and the place they all share: a wondrous game world called Haven. All of this changes, however, when he’s noticed by the most popular cheerleader in school. Suddenly, things start to look up! He’s in love, finding confidence and enjoying his daily life for the first time… until past decisions come back to haunt him. Harassed by Nicole’s angry ex-boyfriend, and forced to deal with his best friend Diz’s jealousy and suspicion, Garrett’s life will never be the same.
