Choir Boy

A Canadian Stage and Arts Club Theatre Company (Vancouver) Production

By Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Mike Payette

From the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonlight comes the Broadway hit coming-of-age play threaded through with rapturous gospel hymns.

Pharus is a senior at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys, and the proud leader of its legendary gospel choir. The prestigious school is committed to building ‘strong, ethical Black men,’ but conforming to their traditions becomes harder as he learns to accept his identity as a young gay man. Weighing reconciliation and rebellion, Choir Boy is a love letter to the healing power of music, featuring gorgeously sung a cappella hymns.
