Weekend To-Do: 'Summertree'



From L-R: Sarah Johnson, Elizabeth Ross, Will Moon and Jackson Tucker.

7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $10-$14.

An anti-war play not directly about the war, a stream-of-consciousness piece whose actions are projected from the nameless main character's subconscious, a work that jumps from past to future on a whim — this is a trippy one. Written by a 22-year-old Ron Cowen as a reaction to the then-ongoing Vietnam War, “Summertree” revolves around a teen-ager, soon to be killed overseas, and his memories and musings of his thick-headed father, possessive mother, blase girlfriend and his own, younger self.
