Theatrical Outfit continues its season of conversation-starting plays with “Boy.” This time, conversations center on gender identity and love: of other people and of ourselves.

Based on a true story, the play introduces Adam Turner as an adult and unfolds with scenes from his childhood. Born male, a doctor convinces his parents to raise him as a girl after an accident, a choice that leaves Adam (raised as Samantha) in search of a truer self.

This production made a splash in Germany at the beginning of the millennium and now is being produced at regional theaters in the United States. The show takes the songs of the animated Disney movie and adapts them to Victor Hugo’s original text. The themes and the plot of the show also more closely resemble the novel.
