All three are perceived as tales for children, but, in reality, though they are intended to teach youngsters, the messages are often so complex that they go over the heads of their intended audience.

1st Stage Presents the Regional Premiere of TREVOR1st Stage Presents the Regional Premiere of TREVOR
by BWW News Desk - Jan 12, 2017

Trevor and Sandra's relationship spins comically and dangerously out of control in this theatrical story by "Orange is the New Black" writer, Nick Jones. The Chicago Sun-Times hailed Trevor as a "hugely entertaining tragicomedy." (more...)
