Drama: 3m, 2f
From the back cover:
Inspired 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.
"Ziegler...takes 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." --The Hollywood Reporter
"With uncommon empathy and startling insight, Boy gets to the heart of the conflict between medicine and science..." --TheaterMania.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
