The Outsiders

Susan E. Hinton wrote The Outsiders when she was only 16 years old. This stage adaptation deals with real people, seen through the eyes of young Ponyboy, a Greaser on the wrong side of life, caught up in territorial battles between the have-it-made rich kids, the Socs, and his tough, underprivileged “greaser” family and friends. The classic story of young people trying to find and understand themselves and each other.
