The Gershins Go Camping

by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff

A new one-act play by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff

The Gershins Go Camping! is a play about a seemingly perfect, Type-A family that is forced to adapt to the growing pains of each of its members. Conflict arises when Mark, an OBGYN decides to abandon his respectable career to try being a writer. His wife Lily, also an OBGYN, resents his decision and the two ultimately decide to take a break. In order not to inconvenience his family, Mark temporarily moves into a tent in the backyard. Meanwhile, his two daughters, Liza and Lily, just want to be normal teenagers. The play follows the first week of the Gershin family�s attempt at living inside and out. Despite the logistical efforts on Mark�s behalf to ease his family�s transition, the adaptation into their new lifestyle proves to be a messy and heartbreaking process.
