The NIU School of Theatre and Dance presents, Boy by Anna Ziegler, February 13-17 in the Corner Theatre in the Stevens Building on the NIU Main Campus.
Inspired by a true story, Boy explores the hot button issue of gender identity. It is the 1960s, and, after a terrible accident, two parents are convinced to raise their infant son as a girl. Two decades later, complications of this decision continue to unfold as our protagonist encounters new love, explores sexual identity, and endures post-traumatic stress at the hands of a well-meaning but unethical doctor. Boy is a captivating and gut-wrenching tale of identity and self-choice that shows only we ourselves can truly know who we are meant to be.
