by a true story, Anna Ziegler’s BOY explores the tricky terrain of
finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the
inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a
well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise
their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the
repercussions of that choice continue to unfold.
a delicate, restrained approach to her provocative subject matter…When,
at the end, the character achieves a modicum of peace and a chance for
happiness, you won’t be thinking about gender. You’ll be thinking about
humanity.” —Hollywood Reporter. “With uncommon empathy and startling
insight, BOY gets to the heart of the conflict between medicine and
science…” —TheatreMania.com. “Captivating…insightful, gut-wrenching, and
beautiful…dazzlingly, deliciously alive from start to finish…expect it
to be a long while before there’s another play more rewarding, more
moving, and more magical than Boy.” —TalkinBroadway.com.
