From the author of Bach at Leipzig comes a play about loyalty, integrity, and the price of success. When Benjamin’s first novel vaults him into literary stardom, his friend David, a struggling playwright, is thrilled for his newfound success.  Or, he wants to be.  The two young men, who are "somewhere between the ages of seventeen and twenty-seven," find themselves re-evaluating their own goals and values as individuals and questioning their roles as friends and the role of their friendship as it fits into their lives.  Should Benjamin help David by using his new connections?  Can David even expect such favors from his friend?  More importantly, who should pick up the tab at lunch?  The Four of Us is an inventive exploration of the ever-shifting ground of friendship. The play premiered at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California in February 2007.  It was first produced in New York by the Manhattan Theatre Club in March 2008.
