People always say they feel awkward about having eighth grader syndrome. They say they don’t want to talk about it, that they want to forget about it for good. does it really get rid of our crazy old selves and their wild fantasies. Back when we thought we were special, when we thought something greater watched over us?
People sometimes tell lies, dream about the distant future, or invent a lover’s relationship that only exists inside their heads. This process repeats from the day we are bord until the day we die. Forever and ever. It is depressing, it is shameful. But it is dear to us. It is an illness known as self consiosness. It is something we must all face known as “ourselves.” Indeed we carry our eighth grader syndrome through all our lives.
One Night Live will highlight the artistry behind The Last of Us with a live reading of select scenes by the principal actors, under the direction of Neil Druckmann from Naughty Dog. Scheduled to appear are Troy Baker, Ashley Johnson, Merle Dandridge, Hana Hayes, and Annie Wersching. In addition, Academy Award winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla will perform selections from his score. How this all fits together will remain a bit of a mystery until it happens, but trust me when I say it will be a very special evening.
This one-time-only performance will be staged at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica on Monday, July 28 at 7 PM PT. PlayStation fans who will be in the area that evening can secure free tickets to attend the performance in person.(x)
