The Breakfast Club

with Hannah Fisher, adapted from the John Hughes film by Phoebe Gonzalez, September 2014

To welcome new students to campus each fall, WAVE Productions presents "The Incest Show" an adaption of a piece of popular culture (performed by those already involved with their upcoming season, thus "incest"). For the 2014-2015 season, Hartman joined Hannah Fisher to direct an adaptation of John Hughes' The Breakfast Club. Inspired by the limitations of their space (University Library) and the expansive potential of the form, their adaptation delved deeper into the characters and amended some of the backward-thinking elements of the 1985 film.
