Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney (an Oscar®-winner for his Moonlight screen-play), this Tony Award®-winning play – threaded throughout with soul-stirring a cappella gospel hymns – is the story of a battle between identity and community.
Set in the confines of an elite boys’ school, Choir Boy focuses on Pharus Young, the leader of the school choir. A talented scholarship student, Pharus is also the target of vicious anti-gay bullying by Bobby, the nephew of the headmaster. It’s a coming-of-age drama, deeply infused with African-American culture, legacy and hope.
