The latest triumph from playwright Carly Wijs, Boy is vivid, thought-provoking theatre at its best.
Based on a true story, Boy is the tale of twins who are taken into hospital to be circumcised in the 1960s. The procedure goes horribly wrong for baby Bruce.
After consulting with a renowned New Zealand-born doctor, the parents agree to raise Bruce as a girl called Brenda.
Tackling its themes with sensitivity and a quiet intensity, this critically acclaimed play captivates not only as an exploration of gender identity and nature vs. nurture, but of parenting in an ever-changing world.
