Rumble Fish (Romer)
Rumble Fish (Romer)
ALA Best Books for Young Adults

School Library Journal Best Books of the Year

"Rumble Fish is the book I'm most proud of in a literary way— read it again at age twenty-five." —S.E.Hinton
Drama. Adapted by Marcus Romer. From the novel by S.E. Hinton.

Cast: 15m., 6w. (6m. 2w. with doubling.) This stage version of S.E. Hinton's classic novel, immortalized on film by Francis Ford Coppola, explores the themes of gang culture and the search for identity. It tells the story of two brothers, brought up in social deprivation by their alcoholic father. Rusty James idolizes his brother, the Motorcycle Boy. Winner of countless fights, an unquestionable reputation and a legend, Motorcycle Boy was the ultimate rumble fish. But the Motorcycle Boy has disappeared from the small town, and Rusty has relied on his brother's reputation to lead his gang while he's been gone. When Motorcycle Boy suddenly returns, he shuns the gangs and fighting. The events that result force both brothers to confront their desire to break out from their urban trap and eventually leads to death for one and a new beginning for the other. One int./ext. set. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
