                                     MOVIN' OUT PLOT SYNOPSIS
                                                                    ACT I
Long Island in the ’60s. The king and queen of the prom, Brenda and Eddie, are finished,
while forever sweethearts James and Judy are ready for marriage. Their friend, Tony, is look-
ing for that kind of love, and he finds it with Brenda, who has become her own woman. War
takes the men away from home, leaving their loved ones to pick up the pieces. James loses
his life in combat, while Tony and Eddie return home broken as Judy grieves.
                                                                   ACT II
The vets try to cobble their lives back together. Tony can’t seem to find a way to reconnect
with Brenda, while Eddie can’t connect with anyone. Spiraling into a lonely existence of
drugs and self-loathing, Eddie takes a tour through a nightmare of his past, projecting Judy as
his guide. By chance, he encounters Judy jogging in the park, and her forgiveness allows him
to finally set his life back on track. Brenda and Tony rediscover the love needed to heal their
wounds. The friends reunite to discover they have all found their way back home.

                                                                  CAST
