Hole in the Wall Theater Presents THE BOYS IN THE BAND, Now thru 2/1
Even with the polar vortex outside, the Hole in the Wall Theater is focusing on a different storm: the emotional hurricane of Mart Crowley's classic drama "The Boys in the Band." Crowley's landmark drama, which follows a group of gay friends in the late 1960s as a birthday party turns vicious.

Tickets are available by calling (860) 229-3049 or visiting The Hole in the Wall Theater website at www.hitw.org.
"The Boys in the Band" follows a group of gay friends at a birthday party. When a married, straight friend unexpectedly appears, the would-be celebration takes a darker turn as the men dissect their lives, relationships, and each other in a fierce verbal free-for-all.
