"No one can accuse The Actors' Group of playing it safe with the works it chooses to present or in the way it stages them." - John Berger, HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN
"The Actors' Group . . . has stubbornly survived as a small performance group by choosing plays that are often difficult and provocative." - Joseph T. Rozmiarek, HONOLULU ADVERTISER
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.
"Ziegler...takes a delicate, restrained approach to her provocative subject matter...When, at the end, the character achieves a modicum of peace and a chance for happiness, you won't be thinking about gender. You'll be thinking about humanity." -Hollywood Reporter. "With uncommon empathy and startling insight, BOY gets to the heart of the conflict between medicine and science..." -TheatreMania.com. "Captivating...insightful, gut-wrenching, and beautiful...dazzlingly, deliciously alive from start to finish...expect it to be a long while before there's another play more rewarding, more moving, and more magical than Boy." -TalkinBroadway.com.
