4 A.M. is the hit one-act play by Jonathan Dorf.
It's a story about teens trying to navigate the night and their fears and dreams as they search for connection.
What's it like to be awake when the rest of your world is asleep?
Meet early morning joggers, a lonely short-wave radio DJ, a modern Romeo and Juliet, the writer of a most unusual letter, and numerous others.
Through a series of songs, scenes and monologues, they'll survive lonely nights and sleepovers, discover whether the Monster Under the Bed is real and maybe even get to answer that all-important question: "Is anybody out there?"
