INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY. Anna Ziegler's Boy explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold. A story of the blinding power of love and the complicated mystery of one’s perception of self, Boy is a moving play that calls into question how we become who we are.

BWW Review: GOOD PEOPLE at Keegan Theatre
September 12, 2021

The mouthie from Southie was knocked up in high school and her now-grown daughter, Joyce, is disabled.

BWW Review: BOY at Keegan Theatre
February 12, 2020

Angry irony does not usually get used to describe the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein. But there isn't always a bright golden haze on the meadow. 'You've got to be taught to be afraid/of people whose eyes are oddly made/and people whose skin is a different shade,' came from his pen as did, 'You've got to be taught before it's too late/before you are six or seven or eight. . . .' The character who sings these words in South Pacific is furious because he's a white man in love with an Asian woman, and in the late 1940s, he's surrounded by people who'd find her eyes to be oddly made. Adam Turner, the eponymous character in Anna Ziegler's Boy being taught what to be before it's 'too late,' also has the double whammy of being the person who doesn't fit society's idea of how to be. The situation jumps out of Hammerstein's league into Orwell's because it's doubleplusungood. But that word's off the table as applied to Keegan Theatre's fine production of the 90 minute Boy; directed with skill and compassion by Susan Marie Rhea.
