Theatrical Outfit: Boy

THEATRICAL OUTFIT | September 20th from 7-9pm

Join us for an intimate rehearsal of Theatrical Outfit’s upcoming show, Boy. We will watch the actors rehearse then they will join us to enjoy a fun, casual Q&A over refreshments.

More about Boy:

1968-1990. Davenport, Iowa and Boston, Massachusetts. Inspired by a fascinating true story covered by Oprah, documented by the BBC and exposed in a best-selling biography, Boy asks us: does nature or nurture determine who and how we love? A renowned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after an accident, and years later, the repercussions and realities of that choice unfold and alter lives. With humor and tenderness, Boy explores the tricky terrain of loving oneself and others amidst the confusion of gender identity as one very special young person simply yearns to be himself.

Reserve your spot today!
