by Anna Ziegler
directed by Susan Marie Rhea


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… Inspired by a true story, BOY, by award-winning playwright Anna Ziegler (PHOTOGRAPH 51, ACTUALLY), explores the complicated journey of trying to find love in a new body and the inextricable bonds that are built along the way.

A poignant and important love story for our era … BOY is one of the true joys of the new year. — Chicago On Stage

“A great play … Ziegler’s intelligent script lays out this complex story with precision and grace.” — Huffington Post
