A much-beloved Roman Catholic priest is suddenly thrust into the midst of a scandal. THE DEAD BOY is a story of longing and taboo.
“Whether you see the play as a loss of innocence, an abuse of power or an ill fated love story, THE DEAD BOY is a modern-day gothic drama, every bit as tragic and sensational as the headlines about the Catholic church.”
Marlene Canty, Asbury Park Press
“When the boy, only symbolically dead, stands up, stares at heaven to look god in the eye, and swears he’ll never do what he’s about to do, then goes ahead and does it, the earth stands still. But when the boy cuts his throat, noiselessly, with an invisible blade, the world stood still again, and even god was appalled. THE DEAD BOY is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in a theater.”
Mark Howell, Solares Hill Weekly (Key West)
“More than I could have expected from all aspects of this emotionally startling and passionately performed play.”
