The Playgroup, LLC is proud to present its second season at the Willow Theatre at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, starting with SURFING THE RUBICON, directed by Brian Reeves.  A dinner party in an effort to impress a wealthy socialite takes quite an unexpected turn when a surprise guest shows up.

Synopsis of the play: Mitch’s old friend, Biggs, shows up at a bad time. It is the day of a dinner party at which Mitch and his wife, Ginny, hope to secure an investment from a wealthy Palm Beach socialite. To make matters worse, Mitch has to keep Biggs out of Ginny’s sight until after the party because Ginny hates Biggs. It seems she has never forgiven him for ruining her wedding.
