Steel River Playhouse

This new play by Anna Ziegler is about finding love in the midst of confusion. Boy was inspired by a real-life 1960s event. It is the story of a baby boy, maimed in an accident.
As a result of the accident, he is raised as a girl. The play follows the outcome of that choice. Boy is a moving play that calls into question how we become who we are.
