Dan Fingerman's BOYS OF A CERTAIN AGE to Premiere at The Wild Project


ELR Productions is proud to present the world premiere of BOYS OF CERTAIN AGE from the acclaimed team of playwright Dan Fingerman and director Dan Dinero.

This moving play addresses intergenerational gay relationships and issues facing the LGBT community and is the first collaboration between Fingerman and Dinero since the widely praised 2011 production The Austerity of Hope.

The show will run at The Wild Project, at 195 East 3rd St, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan from July 16 to 19.

Ira and Larry were Hebrew school classmates who took different paths in life. Ira came out and moved to the city; Larry got married, had a family and came out later in life. Now they're spending one memorable weekend together with Larry's son Bryan, Ira's nephew Christopher and a whole lot of gay history.

The cast of BOYS OF A CERTAIN AGE features Marc Sinoway (Hunting Season), Brian Gligor (RENT), R. Scott Williams (Shear Madness) and Joseph J. Menino (Murrow).
