Photo Flash: First Look at BOYS' LIFE at The Seeing Place
The Seeing Place is currently presenting BOYS' LIFE, a hilarious but also thought-provoking play by Howard Korder about that precise moment when boys become men. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!
"The play follows Jack, Don and Phil, three 20-somethings who struggle with what it means to be a man," says director Erin Cronican. "Will society allow them to play outside of the stereotypes forced upon them? It's an important play - a Pulitzer Prize nominee in 1988 - and we're very proud of what our artists have been able to do with this production."
About BOYS' LIFE - Told in a series of fast-paced, sharply etched scenes, the play traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city-and with various women of their acquaintance. Moving along briskly, with its mood of satirical humor brilliantly sustained, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism-and protracted adolescence-which characterizes its protagonists and, in the end, makes it hilariously clear that it is actually the women who possess the qualities of "manhood" and maturity which their deluded lovers so desperately lay claim to.
