In this workshopped production of Diana Son’s Boy, a bright cartoon of her newest play, an “everyman” couple conspires at the birth of their fourth daughter to announce they finally have a son, and they raise the baby as a boy. They call her Boy. This seems to work, until Boy begins to develop characteristics of Girl. Son, the Korean-American playwright of Stop Kiss and Satellites, writes with a striking, storybook tone, which runs like a backbone through the play. The play, now in a draft that, until now has been unproduced, is funny, touching, and explores gender like it has never been explored before.
This important production about gender and identity contains sensitive content, including nudity. Under 17 not be admitted without a parent.
