The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the creation of strong, ethical black men. Pharus wants nothing more than to lead the school's legendary gospel choir, but finding his way is not easy if he sings in his own key. Set against the sorrowful sounds of hymns and spirituals, Tarell Alvin McCraney follows his acclaimed trilogy The Brother/Sister Plays with this stirring portrait of a young gay man finding the courage to tell the truth about himself.
