What Is the Story of The Common Pursuit?
Set at Cambridge University, The Common Pursuit is the story of Stuart, a student who hopes to start a literary magazine. Stuart appoints himself as the editor and invites his five friends to help: Marigold, his girlfriend; Nick, an aspiring theater critic; Humphry, an aspiring philosophy professor; Martin, an aspiring publisher; and Peter, who aspires to sleep with lots of women. The play spans 20 years, chronicling the lives of these six unlikely friends as their careers and lives progress.
