BIO: Jim Harvey has earned a BA in Drama from Brooklyn College and an MFA in Playwriting from Carnegie Mellon University. After a successful career as an event planner, this is his first try at writing for the stage again in over twenty-five years. SUMMARY: Jack and Caroline, a couple in their mid-forties return to their alma mata for their class reunion. Visiting one of their old haunts, an old, neighborhood tavern, they reminisce about the old days and how far they come since then. For Jack, however, it also brings back painful and traumatic memories of an encounter with a young woman twenty-five years earlier. A memory play, YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO HOME…but you can’t stay here raises the question: How do you stop feeling guilty when you haven’t done anything wrong?
