Justin Sayre's THE BOY SONATA Set for Wild Project, 4/24-25
The Boy Sonata, a solo storytelling work in 5 parts, written and performed by Justin Sayre will be debut the Wild Project (195 East 3rd Street) on April 24th and 25th at 8pm.
The Boy Sonata, mimicking sonata form, details seminal moments in the life of it's central character, "The Boy." The series of monologues follows 'the Boy' from ages 6 to 17, pinpointing a day, an hour, or a moment when things become much more beautifully and tragically complicated. The Boy Sonata is a heartbreakingly funny tribute to the voice of a child as he develops his unique understanding of the world. Parts of the work have been performed at Fame & Shame, Earl Dax's Pussy Faggot, and as part of last year's HOT! Festival at Dixon Place.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/932637
